Tasting notes
Don Melchor is a bright ruby red. Expressive and complex chocolate, black cherry and ripe plum mingle with coffee and cassis aromas. Full bodied with red fruit flavors and ripe tannins that lead to a long and juicy finish.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 91 points (Jun 2014)
The 2009 Don Melchor is a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc from one of the best terroirs in Chile for Cabernet Sauvignon. 2009 was a warm, powerful vintage, but the microclimate of Puente Alto helps to keep the fruit and acidity, and the wine has lots of notes of beef blood, black berries and licorice. It feels serious, concentrated and ripe, with round tannins, moderate acidity and good length, with some notes of dark chocolate and tobacco toward the finish. Drink now-2018.
 Wine Spectator 94 points (Jan 2 2013)
This muscular red packs a melange of roasted plum, cassis and macerated wild berry on a full-bodied frame. There’s plenty of fresh acidity and tannic structure, as the long finish unwinds with layers of maduro tobacco and humus, with a grace note of wild flowers. Best from 2014 through 2020. From Chile.—N.W.

Food pairing
Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon is appropriate with any hearty dish, especially lamb and steak.
