Casillero Del Diablo Merlot from Chile

Phil Crozier, Director of Wine at Gaucho Restaurants, recommends this punchy Merlot from the slopes of the Andes.

Ready to drink... a bottle of Concha y Toro, Casillero Del Diablo Merlot 2006/7, Central Valley, Chile

Hints of blackberries, vanilla and oak on the nose with a ripe berry finish. All the heavy chocolate features that you would expect of a Chilean Merlot are here.



This really punches above its weight – alas, most probably along with your hangover
