Concha Y Toro Casillero del Diablo Cabernet Sauvingon

Winemaker: Concha Y Toro

Abv: 13.5%

Country of Origin: Chile

Varietial: Cabernet Sauvingon

Background: I’ve never reviewed a wine. This is a wine that is near and dear to my heart as it is one of the first ones I’ve ever enjoyed. It is a good wine on a budget.

 

Taste & Aroma: Bright citrus fruits; raspberries, cranberries, and a wee bit of orange are in the nose. Tannins, dark fruit are at the start and the middle. The finish is a tart one.

Served in a White Cross Cellars glass. They’re out of Iowa. I’ll review one of their wines at some point.

Final Analysis: This is a good budget wine without breaking out the box. It is not too dry and not too tart. It also isn’t sickly sweet. I’m not a fan.
