Casillero del Diablo Merlot is big in volume and smooth, while exhibiting great structure. Dark and deep red color. Luscious fruit flavors: cherries, currants, berries and plums. On the palate, hints of mocha and herbs, generously framed by toasty American oak. It has a mouthfilling texture and is soft, but well structured.
This wine is an excellent complement to a variety of cheeses, meats and pasta dishes.
I had the "Historic" 2007 vintage last night with my wife. We grilled up some strip steaks. I found the Casillero del Diable to compliment them nicely. Light tanins and a peppery bite it. I would defineitly buy it again. I paid 10 dollars for it but it felt like a 15 dollar bottle. I find the Chilean reds to be an exceptional value.
