Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Dark and deep crimson red.

Bouquet: Luscious flavors - dark plums and chocolate with hints of coffee and toasty American oak.

Taste: Notes of dark plums and spice, generously framed by toasty American oak with a soft and well structured mouthfilling texture.

Casillero del Diablo Carménère is excellent with fresh light dishes based in meats, vegetables and fresh herbs. Also a good accompaniment to ripe cheeses such as Gouda, Gruyere or a dry goat cheese.

"A very ripe and ready style of Carmenere. The big berry aromas mixed with spice and herbs are just what you need to get into the juicy, forward palate of plum and blackberry. Roun din the mouth, not tannic, yet still a force to reckon with. Fro $10 this is a lot of wine." 88 Points,
Wine Enthusiast
