Concha Y Toro Casillero Del Diablo Carmenere 2006 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Blackberry, coffee, and sage nose

Dense core of fruit on the palate

Green herbal finish with lingering currant flavors

Try something different next time you're reaching for a Cabernet or Merlot. You'll find this wine showing up more and more in the bargain aisle in wine shops and even in the grocery store. It runs about $10.

The flavor profile is dark and concentrated which is typical of Chilean red wines. There's also an herbal note, in this case a bit green and vegetal. While it's a little rough around the edges, it's something different that's worth trying for $10. (Is Chile the only country in the world that's actually keeping wine their wine prices in check?) Raise a glass!
