THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT…hard to resist that old line when Casillero del Diablo opens the door with a name that translates to: “The Devil’s Cellar”. The name derives from an old Chilean legend about the owner of a great wine cellar who kept the help from sampling his best bottles by telling them that the devil resided deep in the cellar with his finest wines.
The Devil be damned–this is a delightful wine. Made by the venerable Chilean house of Concha y Toro–it’s just hard to find more consistent quality at house wine prices–and that goes for all the varietals of this label. Party wine, house wine, everyday-quaffer–whatever you want to call it–this is a devilishly tasty drop–and such a deal: 11.00
