Concha y Toro Casillero del Diablo, 2019
Looking for a spooky story to tell your wine-loving guests on Halloween? In the 19th century, Concha y Toro’s founder, Don Melchor, discovered that his vineyard workers were overindulging on his greatest wines. To discourage this action, Don Melchor spread the rumor that his deepest, darkest cellar was the Casillero del Diablo (Cellar of the Devil), succeeding in scaring people from entering it. Today, this legendary cellar continues to hold the finest, estate-grown wines of Casillero del Diablo. With intense cherry and dark fruit flavors and notes of vanilla and toast, this full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon makes for the perfect toast to spooky Halloween stories.
