Concha Y Toro Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon Premier 2009
This muscular red packs a mélange of roasted plum, cassis and macerated wild berry on a full-bodied frame. There's plenty of fresh acidity and tannic structure, as the long finish unwinds with layers of maduro tobacco and humus, with a grace note of wild flowers. Best from 2014 through 2020...94"WS 3/2013
External Reviews for Concha Y Toro Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon Premier
The 2009 vintage will be remembered as a warm year in the Maipo, producing ripe, voluptuous reds. Among them, Don Melchor is one of the most successful cabernets of the vintage. It surrounds a robust texture with sweet hints of cinnamon and clove, the warmth of the wine balancing the power of tannins. This is a cabernet to drink on cold winter nights, with cheese.
This iconic Chilean Cabernet is firm on the nose, with cola, cassis, cherry and leather aromas. It’s racy, juicy and powerful, with flavors of cassis, blackberry, plum, nutmeg and coffee that swim in harmony. This is big, but also elegant and clean. Drink through 2019.

The 2009 Don Melchor is a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc from one of the best terroirs in Chile for Cabernet Sauvignon. 2009 was a warm, powerful vintage, but the microclimate of Puente Alto helps to keep the fruit and acidity, and the wine has lots of notes of beef blood, black berries and licorice. It feels serious, concentrated and ripe, with round tannins, moderate acidity and good length, with some notes of dark chocolate and tobacco toward the finish. Drink now–2018.
