Reverse Wine Snob reviewed this wine as follows:

2009 Vintage:
Here at the Reverse Wine Snob, we usually open a bottle of wine at dinnertime, but most of that wine is actually consumed apart from food, usually after dinner. Given this we're not overly concerned about food pairings. And when we are, we usually determine the food first, and then choose a wine to go with it. Every once in awhile though, we taste a wine and think "This would be so good with..." This is one of those times. And what we have here is a great steak wine.

The Casillero del Diablo Carménère has some nice berry notes, is fairly smooth, and has a bit of coffee on the finish. It opened up quite nicely on day 2, so give this one some time to breathe.
