Winemaker Notes:

Deep cherry red in colour, Don Melchor captivates with its balanced, depth, and complexity. The aromas of red fruits delicately intermingle with mineral notes that recall cold ashes and pencil lead. Fine, delicate textures appear on the palate and show this to be an ample, deep wine with a smooth, fine attack followed by an intense, mouth-filling evolution. Concentrated, expressive, and generous in flavours and aromas with a long finish dominated by the balance and elegance of the various layers of flavours.

Pair with red meats (beef and lamb) and game in different preparations, such as roasts, stews, or braises with red wine, mushrooms, rosemary, and tomatoes. Also pairs very well with assorted terrines and patés, especially duck with truffles, or with aged, dried, or creamy cow’s or goat’s milk cheeses.

98 Points - James Suckling

The aromas of lead pencil, blackcurrant and tar are impressive with just a hint of fresh herb. Sweet tobacco. Iodine. Full body, very tight and polished with ultra-fine tannins and a refined, textured finish. 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot. Drink in 2022.

96 Points - Wine Spectator

An elegant and rich-tasting red, full of concentrated red plum, cherry and currant flavours, backed suave, medium-grained tannins. The finish offers a caressing palate of lush spice, cocoa powder and cream nuances. Drink now through 2024.
