Concha Y Toro Carménère Casillero del Diablo 2010
My first thought was, "Mmm, woody!" The nose is fairly understated with dried fruits and wood. It's nice and balanced, a smooth texture and tannins that are sure to be noticed, but won't make your eyes roll back in your head. I'm enjoying this wine with tabbouleh and hummus tonight, probably will enjoy it more with a spot of dark chocolate later!

External Reviews for Concha Y Toro Carménère Casillero del Diablo
A very ripe and ready style of Carmenère. The big berry aromas mixed with spice and herbs are just what you need to get into the juicy, forward palate of plum and blackberry. Round in the mouth, not tannic, yet still a force to reckon with. For $10 this is a lot of wine.
Nice ripe raspberry and plum fruit, with sweet smoke, spice and dried herb notes. Chocolaty finish. Nicely done. Drink now.
Polished, with sweet vanilla toast guiding the plum, black cherry and tobacco notes. followed by a fleshy finish. Drink now.
Pretty plum and cassis fruit, with lush tannins and a round, smoky finish that lets the fruit linger nicely. Drink now.
Concha y Toro is getting Carmenere right. This affordable red is full bodied, with a fair amount of oak and bacon smothering plum and berry aromas. On the whole it's round, juicy and fresh, with lively flavors and good feel.
Shows the grape's characteristic pepper and plum profile, with a fleshy mouthfeel and smoky finish. A nice introduction to Carmenère at the right price. Drink now.
A modestly structured version, with cocoa powder, currant paste, briar and tobacco notes backed by nice grip on the finish. What a value. Drink now through 2009.
