Elegant Bordeaux inspired Cab. Silky tannins with flavours of cassis, plum, coffee, chocolate, and pencil lead. Complex.

An excellent wine! Really smooth but still with intense flavor and a velvety after flavor. Vintage 2011. January 2017

Spectacular wine! A well-balanced complex wine with hints of dark berries, cocoa and cigar box.

It's time for my Friday's Cabernet fix. This time, a wonderful Chilean Cabernet. Deep purple in color with a purplish rim. Beautiful nose of blueberries, blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, earth, spices, peppercorn, leather, bell pepper, sage, peppermint, eucalyptus and smoke. Full bodied with medium acidity and beautiful long legs. Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, cherries, figs, cloves, herbs, earth, cola, vanilla, oak, spices, light vegetables, coffee, chocolates, bell pepper, tobacco, beef jerky and peppercorn. Long finish with firm tannins and black pepper. An elegant, Single Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile, with lots of complexity and fitness, but not fully balanced yet. Still young now, but very enjoyable by itself, and better with BBQ Meats. I paired it with a cheese platter, crackers and nice company. Grapes are grown at the foot hills of the Andes Mountains, on stony soils. 99% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Cabernet Franc. 14.5% alcohol by volume.

Lots of dark plums, black cherries, meat and cassis. Ample tannins and acidity. This could lay down for a few more years.

This #donmelchor is elegant for how big it is. The wine is packed of rich red and black fruit as well as notes of olive, chocolate, and tobacco. It became much more complex over the 4 hours in the decanter. The lack of structure will hurt the wine. The length is great though. #chile #cabernetsauvignon #conchaytoro

Superbly balanced with enough acid and structure to likely improve within five years. Decanted and enjoyed it's youthfulness. Strongly recommend.

Drank with David and Matt D. Needed an hour to open up, but started getting pretty good. Good cab, but too young.
