Concha y Toro ‘Casillero del Diablo’ ‘Reserva’ Carmenere 2014

Other Red from Chile
Review Date : 11-May-2016
Very dark, black-hued ruby-red colour with purple on the rim. The nose is firm and intense with a refined expression of concentrated, ripe blackberry, blackcurrant, dark herb and cassis essence notes, along with savoury olive and subtle oak elements. Piquant mineral nuances add to the vitality, and the depth, intensity and cut of the bouquet are impressive. Medium-full bodied, The palate features a sweetly rich and finely concentrated core of ripe blackcurrants and black berried fruits entwined with cassis liqueur and dark herbs. The wine flows along a fine-grained tannin line with some underlying alcohol drive and fresh acid energy, carrying to a dry, textured finish with good length. This is an elegantly refined, concentrated Carmenere with black fruits and dark herbs on a fine, driven, textured line. Match with herb-marinated lamb and beef dishes, and Mediterranean fare over the next 5-6 years. 100% Carmenere from the Central Valley fermented to 13.5% alc., 60% of the wine aged 9 months in French and American oak casks. 18.0-/20 May 2016 RRP $18.99
