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!

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.
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.
An opening of dense black-fruit, spice, violet and toast aromas functions as an invitation to this plump, chunky, well-balanced Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate bears boysenberry, blackberry and cassis flavors, with chocolate and molasses accents. Toasty, warm and rich on the finish. Drink now–2016.
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.
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.
Scents of chocolate and black pepper lead into this juicy and soft carmenère. A terrific value at $10; you get a ripe block of fruit, ready to drink now.
Surprisingly robust and concentrated for its price, this wine's blackberry flavors are wrapped in dense tannins. For lamb chops.
