Casillero del Diablo is probably the most well known Chilean brand in the whole world. I can’t remember the first vintage I tasted, but I liked them early on, and then less and less as my palate evolved. I have not tasted any in the last 7 years or so and spotting it on the shelves of Tesco made me nostalgic for the old times.
I attended Borjour’s so called Bikavér Duel event in March, where the two wine regions eligible to use the name Bikavér showcased their wines. Eger impressed me a bit more than Szekszárd, especially the Böjt 2016. I bought a bottle the next week.
A curious blend: Cabernet and Cinsault. I follow the South African Winemag so I know this is a historical combination of the two grapes (mentioned here for example: Why Cinsault is becoming a thing (again) ), and I like the idea.
