Concha Y Toro, Casillero del Diablo Reserva Malbec 2016, Central Valley, Chile
Tasting Note: A basic, black-fruit forward malbec with body.
Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of blackberry, black plum, black currant, green-pepper leaf and raspberry.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied malbec delivers flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and slightly-grippy, medium-plus tannin.
There is balance between the fruit and tannin structure even as the wine has a straight-forward taste profile.
Bottle Note: Winemaker’s Note – A robust malbec with intense, dark fruits, black pepper and vanilla. Full bodied, fresh and fruity it has a long, mouth-watering finish. Food Match – Great with grilled meats and roasted vegetables.
