Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Casillero Del Diablo Reserva Carmenere 2007 Wine Review
Laced with dark chocolate, coffee and mocha up front with black raspberries and purple plums on the palate. Lip-smacking delicious! Hamurgers never had it so good. 4.3/5 Carmenere food pairings: beef stew, gourmet hamburgers, grilled meats, meatloaf, ribs.

|Reverse Wine Snob reviewed this wine as follows:|
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.
