Winemaker's Notes:

85% Carmenere, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Syrah.

The color is a dark and deep crimson red, while the bouquet displays notes of dark plums and chocolate with hints of coffee and toasty American oak. On th the palate are flavors of dark plums and spice, generously framed by toasty American oak with a soft and well structured mouthfilling texture.

Enjoy Casillero del Diablo Carmenere with meats, ripe cheese and pasta.
