Don Melchor 2017 contains 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Franc, both from Maipo Alto. This earlier harvest resulted in precise, intense doses of cassis, raspberry and blackberry jam sprinkled with spices and country herbs. A young wine, the tannic structure bodes well for the future even with the moderate freshness. (Joaquín Hidalgo, Vinous, March 2020)

Loved loved loved. Drank 2017 in 2020. Soft tannins, soft fruit, low acid, does NOT need food to enjoy. Tasted at Conche y Toro. Goes down as one of my favorite wines on the planet.
