I believe that, drinking lower-end wines helps keep the palate honest. When 90 Plus Wines reported a 90 point Parker scoring for this second-from-the-bottom tier Casillero del Diablo offering from the capable people at Concha Y Toro, my parsimonious (but suspicious) side took note. The wine does indeed have good depth of color and a nice plum-like nose with a touch of cake spice. However, the entry is not entirely pleasant at first with a certain acerbic and rubbery note that puts all out of balance. An hour later, and the wine settles down to a nicely balanced rich and plummy wine hitting above its weight class. Not 90 points, but excellent value nonetheless.

Nice and ripe, with raspberry and dark chocolate notes, and sweet spice and toast filling out the finish. Concha y Toro is really putting out a solid lineup these days. Drink now through 2003.

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.

Ambitious effort here, emitting lots of coffee and smoke aromas followed by a nice blast of raspberry sherbet character and a good, gutsy finish. A lot of wine for so few dollars Drink now.

Ripe, well balanced fruit highlighted with enticing chocolate, coffee and black plum aromas and flavors. This is the wine to have with that Porterhouse you've been craving.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

Vivid purple in color and presents aromas of black cherry paired with pepper notes and a hint of soft, dark chocolate. On the palate this Merlot is full-bodied and round with cassis flavors and an extended finish.
