Casillero del Diablo Winemaker's Red Blend 2011
This Red Blend's velvety smooth texture carries focused flavors of ripe black fruit, plum, and black cherry upfront, followed by dark chocolate notes in the midpalate. A charming finish is balanced by mild tannins and marked with hints of toast and spice. Enjoy this wine with steak with barbecue sauce, rosemary lamb chops, or spicy ribs.
