Wanted to see what a JS 100 point wine was like (in my price range.) It was a fine selection and very interesting and enjoyable. I recommend it to satisfy any curiosity about Don Melchor and Chilean Cabernet in general. It’s definitely sophisticated and nuanced. Enjoyed with aged NY Strip and family here in northern CT after a day of trout fishing in the Twin Lakes. 19” brown trout caught by my son will be on tomorrow’s menu. Cheers!

Excellent wine competes with the best from France and napa. With a better price range. Loved it. Normally my birthday wine.

Gift from David and Janis, Dec 2019. Enjoyed with David March 1, 2022. 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cab Franc, 1% Petit Verdot. Black fruit, smoke, tobacco. Smooth, well integrated tannins. Just a lovely wine. Drinking beautifully now. Could probably cellar another 10 years, but why?

I normally do not like a Cab that’s not blended with something but this is a special one indeed with bold fruit forward and unassuming cherry that floats all over the top.

It’s a fantastic old world style cab. Savory in profile, it hits you with notes of herbs, violets, and some green pepper, with blackberries underneath. Linear on the palate with a silky texture that finishes with nice chocolate and clove notes. A gem, and a complex wine.

Pretty amazing wine, I wish I let it age more, but it was my birthday so.....picked up two more bottles in Reno on 5/23/18 at total wines, hard to find in Ca. Will let these age.

Very nice premium Cab Sav from Concho y Toro. Medium bodied. Rich flavour of dark fruits and smooth finished. Not very complex. Great wine but it’s expensive for what you get and there many other delicious Chilean options for a much lower price point
