Buy Concha Y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon Don Melchor Puente Alto
* mixed case price $67.49/bottle
Complex and elegant, very expressive and marked by red fruits and soft notes of chocolate and tobacco. Tremendous balance with ripe and friendly tannins. A wine with great depth, structure, and persistence.
Wine Spectator: Still a touch tight, but dense, focused and layered, with well-integrated structure underneath loam, blackberry, espresso, tobacco and sage notes. The long finish has nice drive, with the loam edge stretching out. This has the poise and balance for cellaring. Drink now through 2017. 8,900 cases made.

Robert Parker: The 2007 Don Melchor (98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc) was sourced from the Puente Alto Vineyard in Maipo at over 2100 feet of elevation. The wine was aged for 15 months in 78% new French oak. It sports an incipiently complex bouquet of toasty oak, pencil lead, exotic spices, incense, violets, and black currant, and blackberry. Structured and styled much like a classified growth Medoc, it has the balance to evolve for at least 6-8 years. Patience will be required because this tightly wound effort has much more to reveal. It should be most memorable when it attains its peak.

Wine maker notes
A warmer than usual winter led to a good spring and encouraged good overall development in the vineyard. Although the early summer months were quite warm, the temperature dropped as the season progressed and promoted good maturation in the bunches. Because rainfall is concentrated in the winter months, we were able to wait patiently for the grapes to fully ripen. Highly favorable climatic conditions throughout the entire season and decreased yields in the vineyard resulted in making 2007 a vintage of excellent quality wines.

Food pairing
Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon is appropriate with any hearty dish, especially lamb and steak.
