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.
Nice supple texture, with a mix of plum, cocoa, tobacco and vanilla. The smoky finish gains flesh as it opens. 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.
The 2010 Casillero del Diablo Carmenere contains 15% Cabernet Sauvignon in its makeup and saw 30% of the wine aged for 8 months in barrel. Aromas of spice box, plum, blueberry, and lavender are followed by a sweetly fruited wine with layered flavors and excellent concentration. This excellent value is meant for drinking over the next 4 years.
Lots of fleshy plum and black cherry fruit, with pretty notes of vanilla, tobacco and lavender in the background. A good introduction to the grape. Drink now.
Concha y Toro produces a wide range of wines, and all of them are great! This Carmenere has dark, plummy fruit flavors enhanced by notes of mocha, oak, and spices.
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.
