Concha Y Toro Casillero Diablo Reserve Cab Chile 2009

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 adds length thanks to the toast and coffee notes. Taste: Initially it shows its structure due to the strong tannins that end 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.

At $6.50 for the 1.5 liter bottle, this is amazingly good plonk! Mild nose, plummy start and middle, mostly one well-balanced note, good tannins on the finish. It paired very nicely with tonite's panchetta-based spaghetti alla Carbonara. I dare say it would complement a good pizza as well as any wine out there. I left ~750 ml in the decanter, looking forward to tomorrow's tasting!

A juicy Casillero, this is lushly textured, the strawberry scents surrounded by black pepper and coffee. The tannins are firm and soft, the finish spicy and slightly smoky. And yes, it costs only ten bucks.

For a huge-volume wine, it's what we'd expect. Controlled oak results in aromas of coffee, vanilla, marshmallow and resin in addition to cassis and cherry, while the palate offers generic fruit flavors as well as vanilla and herbal notes. A bit puckery and scratchy, but keep in mind that annual production tops 1.3 million cases.

Focused and forward, offering a velvety edge to the medium-weight mint, currant and black cherry fruit, with a lightly toasted finish. Drink now.

With muscular tannins flanked by concentrated black fruit, this is untamed cabernet. A juicy steak would mellow its youthful energy.

Has some good Cabernet varietal character, with currant and bayleaf flavors and minty notes on the finish. Drink now.

Opaque ruby. Cherry, blackcurrant and mulberry on the jammy nose. Chewy, slightly dry dark fruit and bitter cherry flavors are given bite by tangy acidity, with the smoky quality repeating. Finishes with firm grip, a slight dry edge, with the cherry note repeating.

Shows nice black currant and fig notes, with a soft layer of loam underneath. A juicy hint on the finish keeps it going. Drink now.
