Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely grown grape in the New World. Cabs from Chile have an elegance and earn great respect due to the complexity and diversity of characteristics, stemming from nuances of what the Chilean landscape gives to the grape.
Thick skins lead to classicly high tannins, and strong red and black fruit-forward characteristics on both the nose and palate.
This is without a doubt both Chile and Casillero del Diablo’s main wine variety. Characterized by its intense aromas of cherries, plums and hints of vanilla, it is a full-bodied wine, with delicate tannins, ideal to accompany roast red meats.
It is Casillero del Diablo’s most famous variety, and Decanter magazine called its 2005 vintage the best of the planet. It features intense aromas of cherries and plum with a touch of vanilla and toast. It has the most body of all red varieties and is elegant and ideal with red meats such as beef with black pepper sauce.
