CASILLERO DEL DIABLO 'LEYENDA' - MAIPO VALLEY - 2015
Leyenda's roots dig deep in Pirque, in the heart of the Maipo
Valley, Chile where the renowned Casillero del Diablo legend began more than
130 years ago. Two-decade-old vines grow in the rocky alluvial soils of Block
22 and yield high quality Cabernet Sauvignon grapes that are carefully hand-picked
each year in mid-April to create Leyenda, Casillero del Diablo's masterpiece. Aged
for 20 months in French oak barrels, this wine reflects the unparalleled
quality of Pirque, one of the world's most famous terroirs for Cabernet
Deep, dark red in color with predominating notes of blackcurrant, plum, and red cherries accompanied by a subtle touch of dark chocolate, vanilla, and a pleasing touch of smoke that comes from the oak aging. This elegant wine with tremendous body and fine ripe tannins stands out for its concentrated flavors that lead to a long and pleasing finish.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
