My parents really enjoy this wine. They buy it in mass quantities (6 magnums) from Sam's and finish a bottle in about 3 days. That being said, this wine is an enjoyable "house wine" that is nice to have around. This wine is medium bodied with medium dryness. You can taste slight tannins with a hint of spicy berry. Being a mass produced wine, it leave little on the palate and does not have much finish. This can be expected for the $7 price tag for a magnum. If you are in the mood to drink a lot of wine without breaking the bank I would recommend this but if you want to experience the true terroir of Chile I would look elsewhere...
Smoky sweet fruit in the nose, smoky mocha with nice oak and finish. Smooth, nice!
I have to agree with fellow Snoother Tabednar's review. This is a decent house red that's affordable to boot.
One of the best examples of the varietal I've ever tasted - 90% Carmenere with 10% Cab thrown in for grace notes. Full-bodied w/ powerful blackfruit and spice - and a little black pepper - and while almost 15% alcohol and rich, isn't an overwhelming fruit bomb. Nice finish and really smooth tannins. Just outstanding and marvelous value.
A tão falada safra histórica de vinhos tinto reserva da Casillero 2007 realmente produziu uma vinho diferenciado. Não sei dizer o quanto superior aos anteriores já que nunca fui grande consumidor do vinho. Mas o Carmenère está excelente. Aroma, achocolatado e frutas vermelhas. Fica uma leve impressão de que falta algo, o gosto não é tão persistente. Mas pelo preço no Brasil de R$ 33,00 é um vinho espetacular.
Great Value, won't astound but won't disappoint either. Smooth is the name of the game here...hints of chocolate, plum, and almond.
Excellent value for money. Smooth, well balanced, dark fruits, touch of chocolate. Good with burgers, grilled meats etc

Focused and rich showing blueberry blackberry and dark licorice aromas with hints of mineral and flowers. Full-bodied with a seamless core of fruit and tannins. Long and caressing on the finish. Best after 2013 Wine Spectator.
Deep ruby. Powerful blackberry, cassis and mocha aromas are enormously appealing and seem almost too big for the glass. Weighty dark berry flavors offer excellent palate coverage, with gentle tannins adding shape and suave minerality giving lift. Finishes with impressive clarity and persistence. This wine is sourced from a single site, the Puente Alto vineyard.
Shows alluring coffee bean, currant paste and fig aromas and flavors, with ample loamy tannins and a ripe, muscular finish where cocoa and tar notes hang on for added effect. Accessible now, but will get better with cellaring. Drink now through 2013.
With a great nose of currant confiture and cocoa powder, this full-scale Cabernet sports dark fig, currant and blackberry fruit, layered with loam, cedar, tobacco, mineral and coffee. Long and authoritative finish just sails on thanks to rather regal tannins. Best from 2007 through 2016.
Ripe and focused, with a pure beam of black currant and plum fruit, layered with cocoa, mineral, loam, tobacco and toast. Ripe, smoky finish, with impressive structure for the vintage. Drink now through 2010.
The Don Melchor has been hailed by both the Wine Spectator and Robert Parker as the best Cabernet Sauvignon out of Chile, and I must say, I concur. Full-bodied and dense, with rich, ripe fruit, and notes of vanilla and tobacco, yet elegant, with restrained alcohol and muscular tannins. Great balance and complexity; I was still thinking about it hours later! Though we enjoyed it thoroughly now, this wine will continue to drink amazingly for the next decade or so. The best part of all, though, is that you can enjoy this wine for a fraction of what you would pay for a Napa Valley Cult cab; in this economy every penny counts, but you definitely donrsquo;t need to sacrifice on quality! P.S. Check out Concha y Tororsquo;s website for the recipe of one of their favorite pairings mdash; garlic steak.
81% Cabernet Sauvignon 19% Merlot. Dark purple color with full intensity to the rim. Expressive perfume. Very tight and closed black cherry and black berry fruit with shale and slate mineral structure and power. Andy Frieden.
