Casillero del Diablo Pinot Noir 2012

Samples of Casillero del Diablo? Yes, please! And they didn’t disappoint – we tasted 4 reds, and all were really tasty wines, good for both sipping and complementing dinners.

The 2012 Pinot Noir has a darkish ruby red color, muskmelon (a bit off-putting at first) and red cherry scents, earthy tart dark cherry flavor, with a smooth finish. From the original musky aroma, we weren’t sure we’d like this wine, but it opened up beautifully.

Retailing around $10, these wines tasted far above that price, a great Quality Price Ratio!
