Concha Y Toro Casillero del Diablo Cabernet Sauvignon Central Valley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Beautiful and lively ruby red colour with brilliant hues. Aroma: The expression of cassis in this wine perfectly represents the Valle Central and its richness in fruit such as cherries and plums. The barrel ageing length thanks to the toast and coffee notes. Taste: Initially it shows its structure due to the strong tannins that ends elegant and juicy. The fruit flavours are confirmed by the long and elegant after taste which is balanced in the barreling process. Food Pairing: Red meat, lamb ribs and stews with good presence of spices.

Casillero del Diablo is a label produced by Concha y Toro Winery in Maipo Valley, Chile. Legend has it that in the early 1890s, winery founder Don Melchor went to his cellar to discover several of his best wines had gone missing. Hoping to ward off more thieves, he spread the rumor that this must have happened because a devil lived in his cellar, hence the name, which translates to “the devil’s cellar.” The first wines branded Casillero del Diablo were produced by Concha y Toro in 1953 and became an international success by the 1960s. The devil icon became a part of the packaging starting in the 1990s. The portfolio is now under the direction of winemaker Marcelo Papa. The wines are available in many styles and varietals of dry reds and whites, plus rosés and sparkling wines. Many of these considered terrific values for their pricepoints.  Read less

The 2011 has nice deep color and minty nose but falls apart on the palette. Simple and light bodied with a short finish. My rating -- 79

A nice red with a medium body. Great value for the price. It has some nice tannins, but nothing overly complex, making it extremely drinkable for both wine novices and those more experienced.

Good example of nice balanced (supermarket) wine. Not overdone, not complex.

Tastes diluted, very watery. Maybe I just prefer a drier red. Either way, the flavor is decent and it's definitely overpowered by the watery consistency.

Bright, dark plum in color. Appealing ripe cherries, black currant and dark plums with a touch of vanilla and toasted oak. Medium bodied with smooth and friendly tannins. Hints of plums and cherries and a generous touch of toasted American oak. - Winery

Auge: tiefes Rubinrot; Nase: reiche Aromen nach roten Kirschen und Pflaumen, duftet nach Vanille und Eichenholz; Gaumen: konzentriert und elegant, leichte Noten nach Schokolade und roten Beeren, würzig, leichte Röstaromen, vollmundig, komplex und gut ausgewogen, mit lang anhaltendem Abgang.
