Penley "Phoenix" Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Member Review by rckr1951:

Well done with plenty of dark berry fruits complimented by cherries. Spice and peppery notes accompany the Coonawarra minerality as does the slight nuances of smoky oak. Well put together this could sit for another 2-3 years if properly stored. A refreshing, lingering finish is your reward, as is another sip. Drink or hold - Paul 90 points

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
