The Reserva Privada Malbec from Casillero del Diablo is a Super Premium wine, made from selected grapes from the hillside vineyards of Peumo. Located in the warm Rapel Valley about 100 miles south of Santiago, the Peumo Vineyard receives cooling influences from the nearby Cachapoal River and Lake Rapel. These bodies of water control the high temperatures in the area, allowing for a slow development of aromas and flavors, resulting in high quality Malbec grapes full of character and true varietal aromas. Deep, intense garnet red in color,showing great aromatic intensity on the nose with delicious aromas of blackberries, plums and black cherries, followed by pepper and subtle touches of vanilla and dark chocolate. Generous, yet well-balanced texture on the palate perfectly highlights the mouth-filling flavors of dark plums and spice, rounded out by soft oak influences and a long, satisfying finish.

One of the world's three leading wine producers and South America?s single largest exporter of fine wines, Concha y Toro accounts for virtually a quarter of Chile?s total wine production. ?Founded in 1883, Concha y Toro was the first producer to introduce Chilean fine wines made from French grape varieties. Today, Concha y Toro spans over a dozen estates located throughout the premier wine regions of Chile. The outstanding value represented in each of Concha y Toro?s different collections is possible in part because the wines are made in Chile. A viticultural paradise, Chile is blessed with abundant sunshine, land, microclimates for every grape and a tradition of French winemaking techniques, in addition to being phylloxera-free. In contrast to other larger-scale wine companies, which have opted to diversify into wine regions worldwide, Concha y Toro has opted for a home-grown approach, concentrating exclusively on its South American homeland.
