Concha y Toro ‘Casillero de Diablo’ ‘Reserva’ Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile
Review Date : 09-Dec-2012
Fruit from the Central Valley, fermented to 13.5% alc., 60% of the wine aged 8 months in American oak barrels. Very dark, black-hued red, near impenetrable, with youthful purple hues to the colour. This has a softly concentrated nose with good intensity of blackcurrant and black berry fruit aromas, quite direct, revealing notes of leaf, herbs and spicy oak. Medium-full bodied, a rounded core of blackcurrant fruit entwined with blackcurrant leaf and fresh herbs drives the palate line. Soft in mouthfeel, there is a firm tannin and acid cut underlining the fruit which accentuates the herbal elements. The wine finishes with lingering nuances of liquorice, cedar and spices. Clearly varietal, this Cabernet Sauvignon has a soft mouthfeel with a firm underlying drive. Serve with roast lamb over the next 4-5 years. 17.0-/20 Dec 2012 RRP $15.99
