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

This wine has nice density and concentration, with plenty of rich cherry, plum and chocolate flavors. Firm and drinkable, now through 2000.

Lush, generous blackberry, plum and herbal flavors on medium-bodied frame. Refreshing acidity and mild tannins contribute to this winersquo;s smooth, ripe flavors.

Herersquo;s another terrific value from the Casillero line. This meaty merlot fills the mouth with its black cherry and tea leaf scents over a soft and dense texture of tannins. The freshness of its fruit makes it approachable now with fettuccine Alfredo.

Nice and full on the nose, with a bit of subtle oak that yields smoke, bacon, coffee and mocha aromas. Red plum and sweet berry fruit lead to a smooth finish. Good and in proportion, if a touch raw and woody.

Has soft, medium-weight berry fruit with a bit of sweet smoke that lingers on the finish. Drink now.

Open-knit, forward and tasty, with nice red and dark berry fruit, toast and bramble hints and a smooth, chocolaty finish. Drink now.

Very tasty, with ripe raspberry and blackberry fruit, cocoa powder, toast and a hint of herb. Nice briery edge to the finish. Drink now through 2004.
