Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

The beginning is marked by the dark plums and spices making this wine very generous in taste. The final structure is wide and round thanks to the presence of the barrels that has been excellently integrated. The after taste is long and elegant. Harmonizes perfectly with all types of barbecues, ripe cheeses and sweet-and-sour sauces. Stews and herbs are another partner for this wine.

Natalie's Review

Concha Y Toro Casillero Del Diablo Malbec 2008, Chile, Chile: Tasty depths of black-purple plums, blackberries and black raspberries. Toasty hickory smoke wafts through the basket of fruit. Full-bodied, supple and warm. Invites to sidle up next to the bottle like an old friend at the bar. 94060 13.50%  750 mL  $12.95 Score: 86/100. September 2, 2009  Full Review

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
