Concha Y Toro Carménère Casillero del Diablo 2013
Over the years, Chilean producers have added Sauvignon Blanc to their fine portfolios of Cabernet and Merlot. This 2013 Casillero del Diablo Sauvignon Blanc by the great Chilean producer Concha Y Toro has lots of delicious tropical fruit flavors with fresh acidity and clean, mouthwatering finish. *Screw Cap*
Two and a half glasses
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!
Three and a half glasses
One of my favorite wines. Period. Delicious, smooth and spicy. Long lasting finish. Great price, too.
External Reviews for Concha Y Toro Carménère Casillero del Diablo
Ruby-like, bright in color. Fruit forward with red plum and varietal characteristics. Medium dry, medium body and harmonious with a good finish This wine marries two of the classic Bordeaux grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon offers character, complexity and longevity, while Merlot adds softer tannins and elegance, patterned after the same classic blend that distinguishes many fine chateaux of Bordeaux.
Auge: sattes Dunkelrot; Nase: Aromen nach Pflaume, Johannisbeere und Schokolade mit einer Note nach Kaffee und leichten Röstaromen; Gaumen: voller Körper, mild, gut strukturiert mit einer Note nach Pflaume und Gewürze
Marques de Casa Concha, is dark ruby red in color with luscious aromas of cherry and blackberries intertwined with cedar and smoke. These notes follow through to the palate. Tremendously concentrated flavors are revealed in firm tannins with a soft, silky texture and a lingering finish. - Winery
This compact yet suave red is marked with silky layers of cassis and wild berry fruit that mingle with well-integrated hints of graphite, tobacco and toasty oak. Drink now through 2018.
The 2010 Marques de Casa Concha Carmenere spends 18 months in French oak barrels of which 35% is new. It has an agreeable chocolate powder scented nose with notes of licorice coming through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannins, touches of mocha and spice with a dash of cardamom towards the dusty finish. Drink now–2013.
Light gold. Ripe melon and peach aromas, with nuances of candied ginger and honey adding complexity. Juicy, palate-coating pit fruit flavors are given bite by a note of bitter orange pith and pick up spiciness with air. Finishes slightly bitter, with good energy and focus.
A concentrated and flashy red, delivering tasty layers of cassis, kirsch and plum sauce that are backed by fresh acidity and a fine finish of iron, black licorice and juicy fruit. Drink now.
