External Reviews for Concha Y Toro Merlot Casillero del Diablo
Has soft, medium-weight berry fruit with a bit of sweet smoke that lingers on the finish. Drink now.
Early returns are that the 2002 vintage surpasses even the excellent 2001 vintage, with plenty of "plump-factor" going on. This one's bursting from the glass with nice, ripe red fruit. A classy wine that shows restaint where your wallet is concerned.
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.
Huge and colorful, and very youthful. For density and lushness on what can best be described as basic Merlot, you're not going to find it much better than this. It's all blackberry, chocolate and berries, but somehow they've squeezed some earth and spice in there as well.
A plush, well-sculpted Merlot from a reputable and value-conscious Chilean winery, this features fairly intense flavors of red plum and currant and well-integrated dark spice notes that linger on the finish. Drink now through 2002.
Very deep and saturated blackish purple color. Medium-bodied. Balanced acidity. Moderately extracted. Mildly tannic. Black fruits, minerals. Relatively straightforward with a lush and velvety mouthfeel. Subtly flavored with fruit overtones weaving in and out of a clipped finish.
Aromen nach Brombeeren und Pflaumen mit einem Hauch von Pfeffer, Vanille und Röstaromen. Voller Körper, mild, gut strukturiert.
