Concha y Toro Don Melchor Puente Alto Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||Chile, Maipo Valley, Puente Alto|
|Brand||Concha y Toro|
Fantastic aromas of blackcurrants and other dark fruit with crushed stone, iron and oysters, following through to a full body that shows incredible energy and depth, offering ripe yet fresh fruit, together with bright herbs and earth. Precision and balance of the intensity of the vintage. Layered. Perhaps the greatest Don Melchor ever made. Try after 2022.
A full, spicy nose is packed to the brim with smoky, toasty oak and earthy black-fruit aromas. A ripe, full, and chewy palate is smoth in feel, while this classic Cabernet from Puerto Alto in the Maipo Valley taste of coffee, rich chocolate, toasty spices, and blackberry. A lush, bold finish runs long, indicating that this will age well. Hold through 2040.
