JS Top 100 2017 #63 98 Points, James Suckling, August 2017: "Wonderful aromas of stones, mint and blackcurrants. Sweet tobacco. Tile and rust. So aromatic. This is the best Don Melchor I have ever tasted. Full body, very soft yet firm and silky. It has tension, intensity and balance. Drink or hold. TOP 100 WINES OF THE ANDES."
