2013 Casillero del Diablo Merlot

June 4, 2015 - Norman Bentley
#21-15-PIE

Last week I wrote about the white wine we served at a small reception for about thirty people at our house. We, of course, also served a red which was as well received as the white. We chose the 2013 Casillero Del Diablo Merlot from Concha y Toro, and neither I, nor our guests were disappointed. The Casillero Del Diablo line up of wines from Chile is like a trusted old friend who never lets you down.

This is a quality bottle of wine for a popular price, and was excellent as a companion to the assorted cheeses we had provided for our guests. The color is dark and intense, and the aroma is cherry with a hint of spice, which opens to flavors of cherry with a touch of blackberry. Underlying the basic flavors is a mild suggestion of currant which flows into a finish, which is well balanced between the fruit and acidity. It is a good choice for an informal gathering and would also make a good companion for most pasta dishes. Norm's score is 88.

score: 88

price: $ 8 - $11
