Concha Y Toro Pinot Noir Casillero del Diablo 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Cono Sur was born around the oldest Pinot Noir vineyards in Chile. They were the first in Chile to produce and export Premium Pinot Noir. Producing this variety has been Cono Sur’s most exiting challenge. Their “Pinot Noir project” started in 1999, with the aim of producing the best Pinot Noir in Chile: unique, expressive and proud of its New World roots, while vinified according to the Burgundian tradition. From this same French DO comes Martin Prieur, an experienced Pinot Noir winemaker who has helped ConoSur select Chilean terroirs and advised them on optimum vineyard management.The Ocio Pinot Noir has a complex and delicate black fruit and white flower aromas, together with violet notes, combine harmonically with sweet spices and chocolate. In mouth it shows intense sweet fruit, elegance, rich texture and concentrated flavours. This amazing Pinot Noir has very soft tannins, a great structure and a rich and long lasting ending. It is a perfect companion for red meats, poultry, duck and mature cheeses. It’s also an excellent option to serve next to Easter Island tuna fish, or different kinds of rice, such us risottos or sushi. Cheese-wise, something white and ripe like Brie is a great choice.

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

Another hit for Concha y Toro. This Pinot Noir is more an aromatic kind of floral burgundy than a full body weigth californian.
