Casillero del Diablo Carmenere 2010
|Brand||Casillero del Diablo|
Wine EnthusiastGrapey aromas suggest boysenberry, and soon comes a wave of forced, minty oak. The palate is aggressive at first, with heavy, bullish flavors of minty wild berry and coconut. Falls off on the finish, leaving tannic bite and warmth.
Wine SpectatorForward and direct, showing a range of sour cherry, red licorice and damson plum notes liberally laced with toasty vanilla. Drink now. 293,000 cases made.
