On Rhonda’s birthday, we just decided to do a little South American restaurant and bring along wines from the same region - the Don Melchor reserve cab has actually improved from a few years ago - opened and let catch it’s breath while we’re having a tasty chard and what do you know - first sip was Divine- truly an great example of why we on delectable take the time to post about our treats - finally I am lucky man -married 30 years and she is like wine I am mentioning - she gets better everyday - well played Mike - love you babe - happy birthday — 3 days ago
Deep ruby, almost purple, hue with pink rim variation. Subtle color extraction on the glass. Nose offers fig jam, raspberry preserves, and blackberry bramble with sweet tobacco, oak, cedar, nutmeg, vanilla, roasted green bell pepper, oregano, and peat notes. Palate is dry and consistent with the nose. More noticeable oak on the palate and soft tannins. Love this Chilean Cab! Vintage 2015. ABV 14.5%.

Solid Bordeaux style with the addition of plenty of Chilean sun, you can’t go wrong. Flavours are more Christmas spice than I would have expected with a rich dry fruit finish. Not in the Alma viva leagues but a good drop. In fairness I started this too cold after a spell in the fridge but it really started to evolve as it warmed up and also on the second day. If there was a 9.05 score option that would be right. — 18 days ago
Color of ruby with purple shades, quite clear. Nose of chocolate, tobacco leaves, leather, dried strawberry, strength of alcohol, and blackberry. Nose is quite powerful. Taste is dominated by concentrated dried strawberry, ripe juicy grapes, some brown sugar, hint of flowering note, spice, a bit peppery, and a bit zest. Zest shows up more in the aftertaste. Low tannins but full of flavors. — 13 days ago
