Merlot – Casillero del Diablo


Before I start I want to thank Grexxen and the Jessie, for getting me this piece of art for my birthday. Your friendship is the greatest gift.


In English, the Devil’s Cellar.

I first heard about this wine, when I was a child and saw and advertisement on TV. It told the story of the name was chosen. It had dark, mysterious effects and it was neatly narrated, to the point that I can still recall the voice and the story.

Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot – Isla Negra West Bay

If this wine was French it is likely that it would be a Bordeaux. But it is Chilean, making it perfect, ’cause I am a fan of South American Wines.

It is drier than the Saga, but I was lucky enough to get it cold, so its fruitiness and sweetness came dancing around. Perfect combination of both kinds of grapes.

How can I describe its color? It’s dark and deep, but translucent and shiny when seen through the light.

Bordeaux – Saga

RED WINE NIGHT! That’s what it was meant to be. Mainly because of two big reasons:

1. We have been having whites and recently roses

2. When I was in Dominican Republic, I brought back a curious magical bottle for Grexxen. It has roots and other twigs. The very first time, you are suppose to fill it with a red wine and leave it for 1 week, after that that you can fill it with any other types of alcohol and get shots every 3 days. We have to try it, right?

Merlot – Tambo

When I started this section of the blog, my close friends thought they would give me a hand with some wine tasting. I call it Wine-Tasting 01.  So we adventured into the local tiny supermarket. For those who know it, Simple Mart.

The goal of the night was a red and a white one. The white one was Cape Elephant, we had previously had it with Jessi and we just needed to have it one more time. So the indecision was, which red one? We did not have many choices, but we hadn’t tasted any, so any option would be a new adventure.

MERLOT! One can never go wrong with Merlot. And as a South American Wine fan a Chilean Merlot was the winner.
