Concha Y Toro, Casillero del Diablo, Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, Central Valley, Chile
Tasting Note: A strong, sturdy cabernet sauvignon with hair on its chest.
Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of black currant, red plum and cranberry.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied cabernet displays red fruit flavors suggested on the nose along with grippy, medium-plus tannin and some tar notes on the finish.
There are hints of carmenere in the blend that add the grape’s distinctive pepperiness.
A cabernet that would pair well with grilled meats.
Tasting Note: Winemaker’s Note – A smooth cabernet sauvignon full of cassis and black cherries complemented by hints of mocha and dark chocolate. Food Match: A great choice to match with red meats, herby dishes or mature cheeses.
