Wine Casillero del Diablo

One of the advantages to blending wine is that the winemaker looking for particular flavor profile can evaluate and assess each vintage and pick and choose the grapes.

That allows the winemaker to change the blend of each vintage if they choose. Surprisingly this vintage from Chile does not include any of that country’s signature grape carmenere. It is 70 percent syrah and 30 percent cabernet sauvignon.

The nose and the flavors ooze with tones of dark fruit and it borders on semi-sweet with nearly 12 grams/per liter of residual sugar.
