87 points – Wine Spectator
James Molesworth, November 30, 2011
“Ripe, mouthfilling glazed pear and tarte Tatin notes stay fresh and lively, as honeysuckle and green plum notes stretch out the finish. A superb value. Drink now.”

86 points – Wine Enthusiast
Michael Schachner, December 1, 2011
“Gears up with basic aromas of apple and tropical fruit. The palate is round and a little syrupy in feel, with candied, sweet flavors of melon and banana. Has the weight and sweetness to offer mass appeal.”


Casillero del Diablo Malbec 2010

87 points – Wine Spectator
James Molesworth, November 15, 2011
“A very friendly, forward style, with soft but focused blueberry and plum fruit and a rounded, lightly toasty finish. Drink now.”


Casillero del Diablo Merlot 2010

87 points – Wine Spectator
James Molesworth, December 31, 2011
“Ripe and fresh,this red delivers a tasty core of mocha, raspberry and boysenberry flavors that push through the fleshy finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.”


Casillero del Diablo Sauvignon Blanc 2010

87 points – “Best Buy” – Wine Enthusiast
Michael Schachner, December 1, 2011
“More peachy and melony than sharp, with simple, lightly prickly aromas, honeyed peach and passion fruit flavors, and a round, soft finish. A solid, round quaffer that doesn’t sizzle but won’t disappoint.”

86 points – Robert Parker
Jay Miller, February, 2012
“Herbal notes of sage, thyme, and cut grass are accompanied by lime and grapefruit aromas. Mediumbodied, concentrated, and balanced in the glass, this dry, tasty effort will pair well with oysters and clams. Drink it over the next 12-18 months.”


Casillero del Diablo Syrah 2010

86 points – Robert Parker
Jay Miller, February, 2012
“Notions of smoke, blueberry, and lavender set the stage for an easy-going, uncomplicated wine. It offers soft fruit, spicy flavors, and no hard edges in a wine meant for drinking over the next 3 years.”
