The glass-etching inky, ruby '06 Concha y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon 'Don Melchor' is a beautifully layered wine. Lovely aromas of ripe plums, oak spices, leather and cocoa meld into sweet raisin and cassis flavors. This precise, well-balanced Old World-style wine finishes long, warm and creamy.

Entire group called this a Napa cab blind. Licorice and dark cherry nose with a hint of mint. Full, round with cocoa powder, spice and leathery coffee, all elegantly packaged with fine tannins. Ready to drink with 2 hr decant. Will disappoint anyone looking for 'terroir', but this is new world cab from the big leagues.
