Cabernet Sauvignon

Concha y Toro 'Casillero del Diablo' Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon

750 ML


Product Description

Originally from Bordeaux, France, this is currently the most ubiquitous variety on a worldwide scope, a feat that is largely due to the fact that Cabernet was able to adapt successfully to almost every type of soil. When young, its most pervasive trait is the forcefulness of its tannins, which tend to soften over time and give way to exceptional, elegant, good-bodied, flavorful and round wines characterized by pepper, black fruit and cassis notes.


Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Region: Chile

Region Description:

Although the Spaniards first established vineyards here in the mid 16th century, most of today’s Chilean wine is made from French grape varieties, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay. Chile’s isolated position between the Pacific and the Andes means it is safe from pests and disease that plague European vineyards, and also assures mild temperatures and relatively dry air. Most of Chile’s vineyards are in the Central Valley, and a fair number of them are owned by renowned French, Spanish, and American winemakers. Wines are named for their grape varieties, but they carry a regional or district indication as well. Reasonably priced, and increasingly sophisticated, they make excellent values.
