Casillero del Diablo Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2011 from the Valle Central in Chile.

This is a wine from the Concha Y Toro label, it is big and brambley, lots of freshening acidity but also a fine lick of vegetality. It is 13.5% but well balanced and juicy, an easy Sunday night wine. Cherry, espresso, black currant all mix together to produce a great accompaniment to a meal, but happy to consume it without! We visited the cellars of Casillero / Concha Y Toro when we were in Chile in 2006, I loved it then, and now is no different.
Score 86 but at around £5 on offer at Tesco's this is a great bargain - go buy!
