Don Melchor, named after Concha Y Toro’s founder, is among Chile’s most-acclaimed wines. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark fruits and espresso notes, a blend of 93% Cab Sauv and 7% Cab Franc, aged for 15 month in French oak (15% new). On the palate flavors of black cherry, plums and currants with smooth oak notes. Fine round tannins, long finish ending with fruit and slightly sweet oak notes. Nice. Tasting Sample!

Wow. Didn't expect this Chilean wine to beat the Napa can we had tonight but it did.

One of my favourite 🇨🇱 wines 👍 @ £55 worth every penny - great now but will be superb in 4-5yrs 😎

🍇 93% Cab S & 7% Cab F

🍷 Dark ruby

👃 Blackcurrant & dark cherry smoke oak mist w/ cocoa mocha condensation dripping off your nasal hairs whilst walking in a mineral infused violet field

👄 Full bodied plump bursting blackcurrant & plum that's silky smooth through a creamy mocha shell

🎯 Long dark fruit & cocoa teeth stain
