'The Devil in the Cellar' Carmenere - juicy, warming, coffee & spice

Carmenere is the signature grape grape of Chile, originally a blending grape used in small volumes in French Bordeaux - and was mistaken for Merlot for over a hundred years in Chile until discovered by DNA testing in 1994. It is a dark and slow ripening grape, but with lots of sunlight and a warm summer produces full bodied and satisfying plump meaty wines.

Casillero del Diablo translates loosely to 'the devil's cellar' and creates wines of terrific value from the producer Concha Y Toro, and has been described in North America as producing the best value for money wines in the world.

Tasting notes

13 December 2013 by Katie Hutton

The 'Reserva' of the Casillero del Diablo wine range, the Carmenere has a distinctive Chilean nose of burnt toffee, gunsmoke and campfire. On the palate full of juicy warming blackberry, bramble, coffee and spice. Definitely one for a fat sirloin steak on the barbeque.
