Concha Y Toro Casillero del Diablo Carmenere 2008

Member Review by rckr1951:

The wine in the bottle is not what it was 2 years ago. This has grown and morphed in to a BIG Carmenere. Large dark berry fruit, red plum, oak, medium tannins and matching acidity. In good years this is always better after 2-3 in the bottle. 90 points - drink now - Paul

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!

" young like a baby now; will be better and more evolved come fall, winter and over the next few years. " is what WE said in 2011. Well they were wrong - after 6 years in the cellar this is just plain stupid good. Fruit - muscular but flowing, full bodied and layered with large tannins a driving acidity this last forever. Hold for 2-3 years if stored properly - 92 points - Paul

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.

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.

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 ** SOLD OUT **
