    Winemaker's 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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This muscular red packs a mélange 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.

    One of the great wines in the world, the Concha y Toro Don Melchor always ranks high in my book! Bold yet elegant, the 2009 clearly brings the varietal and its area to the fore. Bright red currant flavors run long and refined. This is a keeper. (Best Served: 2016-2027)

    This iconic Chilean Cabernet is firm on the nose, with cola, cassis, cherry and leather aromas. It's racy, juicy and powerful, with flavors of cassis, blackberry, plum, nutmeg and coffee that swim in harmony. This is big, but also elegant and clean. Cellar Selection.

    The 2009 vintage will be remembered as a warm year in the Maipo, producing ripe, voluptuous reds. Among them, Don Melchor is one of the most successful cabernets of the vintage. It surrounds a robust texture with with sweet hints of cinnamon and clove, the warmth of the wine balancing the power of tannins. This is a cabernet to drink on cold winter nights, with cheese.

    Alaways a major international, attention-grabbing wine, the full-flavored and youthful 2009 Concha y Toro Don Melchor shows how remarkable the Puento Alto region of the Maipo Valley can be. I'll put this wine up against the best cabernets from anywhere in the world. Can be enjoyed now with a grilled rib-eye of beef, but would easily improve with 10 or more years in the cellar.
