External Reviews for Concha Y Toro Merlot Casillero del Diablo
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.
