Casillero del Diablo Reserva Wines

Casillero del Diablo Reserva Wines

Casillero del Diablo has one of our favorite go-to wines. The wines got their name when Don Melchor de Concha y Toro wanted to scare off those who might try to steal his wines - he started a rumor that a devil protected his cellar and a legend was born. The Reserva line is their collection of Premium wines, spanning 12 varieties made with grapes selected from Chile's best wine valleys.

Tasting Notes:

Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2015: Central Valley grapes; aged in American oak barrels; tart berry, dark red cherry, and cocoa aromas; dark cherry, cassis, and earthy flavors; cork closure.

Casillero del Diablo Reserva Wines
