Casillero del Diablo Carmenère (Chile 2008)

Casillero del Diablo Carmenère

It’s that time of year again, when we faithful Baptists drag out the “harvest” decorations and feed the neighborhood monsters too much candy*. And why not plan for some more adult celebrations?  That’s right! It’s time for Hallowine.

To plan for your harvest dinner party, I’ve sought out a few bottles that might be appropriate for a spooky, devilish, haunted evening. We begin with Casillero del Diablo – the Devil’s Cellar. It even comes with a little devil sticker, to remind you that you’re being a very bad Baptist, indeed.

The CdD Carmenère is a leggy, garnet red in the glass, with fragrances of oak, leather, dust, cocoa, and currents. On the tongue, it’s tannic, with flavors of raspberries, currants, and bitter chocolate. To tell the truth, it’s a little thin and mild-bodied, but that’s not why we bought the bottle anyway. We bought it to scare our church friends. (Hi Mom!)

So, grab a bottle or three at your local grocer, where it normally sells for around $10. And let us know how your “harvest” party guests like it.

*Don’t forget to invite the monsters to Sunday school!
