Concha y Toro Casillero del Diablo Reserva Privada 2007
Inky ruby. Brooding cherry and cassis on the nose, with hints of pepper and spice trying to struggle through. Subdued but alluringly sweet dark berry flavors are kissed by vanillin oak. Offers good sweetness but seems a bit stunted right now. The finish shows bitter cherry and dark chocolate character and lingers nicely.
Sweet and ripe in aromatics, with notes of maple and inky black fruit scents. The palate is rock-solid and thick, with a good texture, tannic grip and flavors of cassis, berry and leather. Composed and medium-long on the sturdy finish. A mix of 85% Cab and 15% Syrah.
