Casillero del Diablo Carmenere (2005)

Casillero del Diablo Carmenere 2005This Casillero del Diablo Carmenere 2005 is quite a find. Tom bought it tonight at our local grocery store, Polly’s Country Market. My first whiff of this Chilean wine is of white pepper. This Carménère is a rich and luscious red. Tom bought it on sale for $7.

It is full bodied, with bacon, oak, and soy sauce (flavors) along with plum and berry (aromas). On the palate is a round, juicy, and fresh mouth feel with a long, slightly dry, and bitter finish. Fabulous! If you can find it, buy it. If you like a big, dry red, I am confident you will like this one. We will have this with garlic encrusted roast beef, potatoes, carrots and onions, and a fresh, green salad.

    Melody and Tom: I don’t know which sounds better…the wine or the food! Do you take boarders? 🙂

    Haha, thanks Vicki! We would gladly take you as a boarder! I would make you a martini drinker in no time!
