Casillero Del Diablo Carnemere 2004 (PB)

This is another Chilean wine from the folks at Concha Y Toro. It runs $9 and is a nice value. It is a lush garnet red with huge ripe fruit forward aromas of blackberries, black cherries and blueberries. In the mouth it is meaty, a bit hot, and a bit tannic on opening but gobs of beefy and spicy smoke.

With some breathing, it is full bodied, robust and tones down to a decent balanced wine. Finish is smokey like BBQ aromas. It is really a kickin wine! Raise a glass.
