Casillero Del Diablo Carmenere 2004 wine review by (PB)
This Chilean made by the very reliable Concha Y Toro clan has a nice intense color with a dark core and purple notes to the rim. On the swirl it has big dark berry aromas with a touch of baker's chocolate.
In the mouth this is a well made "new world" fruit bomb that is easy to drink and robust. Flavors are just fruit to the core with a bittersweet chocolate foundation. It has some heft so pair it with something a bit more robust but I had it with two different chicken dishes over two nights and it was very tasty! My wife picked this up for under $8 which puts it in the nice value category! So raise a glass, and enjoy!
