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*

Stevige en volle smaak, veel rood fruit (bessen, framboos. Afdronk iets houtigs (eiken ?). Zou goed passen bij stoofschotels en rood vlees. Kan ook gecombineerd worden met gekruid eten. Associatie is vooral met de stevige Italiaanse vrienden zoals de Vino Nobile di Montepulciano maar dat is misschien iets te veel eer.
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.
Concha y Toro has a long track record of producing high-volume, quality wine from Chile. The winery scores this time with a concentrated Syrah from Buin, a district in Maipo Valley near Santiago. Since 1998, plantings of Syrah jumped from 1,400 acres to more than 15,000 in Chile. Concha y Toro's Buin vineyards occupy terraces along the Maipo River, where Syrah benefits from the stony, alluvial soils. 5,500 cases made.
This compact red needs aeration, featuring layers of blackberry and dark plum notes wound around fine tannins, with the long finish evoking savory grilled game, cured olive and mocha. Best from 2014 through 2018.
Pure, alluring aromas of minerally black fruits, lavender, cola, fir tree and pepper combine to form a highly inviting bouquet. This doesn’t fall off in the mouth, where it’s more fresh and bouncy than heavy. Flavors of dark berry fruits, herbs and chocolate end in a rich, grabby, textured finish. Drink this lusty but elegant Syrah now through 2016.
Decadently ripe, this is full of blue and black fruit, a robust and voluptuous red with powerful tannins capable of supporting all that massive flavor. The web of tannins will sustain this wine as it evolves over the next five years.
Concha y Toro is making a big, burly Merlot for this line and it should have mass appeal given how rich, extracted and oaky it is. The nose is dense as chocolate cake and deep as well. The mouth is chewy and thick, with chocolate-covered berries and another whack of wood.
A big and bursting combination of healthy black fruit and copious French oak is manifested in the nose as bitter chocolate and plum pie. The palate is lively and full-bodied, with mature fruit flavors and velvety tannins, while plenty more of that bitter chocolate echoes across the finish.
