95pts, Decanter - JS 95 WS 94 WE 93 - The Don Melchor cabernet remains as elegant as always, with black fruit, tobacco and earthy elements. A long finish with persistant tannins.



95pts, Decanter - With 99% Cabernet Sauvignon and some drops of Cabernet Franc, this comes from the traditional Tocornal Vineyard, planted in the mid-1970s. A cold vintage reveals its herbal, spicy flavours, but above all a crunchy, vivacious acidity and pungent tannins that need time in a bottle. A brilliant version of a classic.

JS 95 WS 94 WE 93 Pts - According to James Suckling - "Gorgeous aromas of eucalyptus, black currants, berries and stones. Medium to full body, fine tannins and tension. Firm, caressing texture. This remains one of the top cabs of Chile as always. Better in 2017."

According to Wine Spectator - "Rich and powerful, with balanced and elegant flavors of dried raspberry, mocha, mineral and dark chocolate. Creamy midpalate, presenting a broad and lush finish, revealing slate and white pepper notes. Drink now through 2022."

According to Wine Enthusiast - "As per usual, Don Melchor is singing a pretty tune. Deep, dense aromas of floral berry fruits and tarry darkness are solid and complete. Pure, elegant and confident across the palate, this delivers firm cassis, plum and cherry flavors backed by a toasty finish accented by licorice. This is rich and brawny but not heavy; drink through 2023." 14.5% ABV.
