The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon has a spicy perfume of toasty oak, black currants, and blackberry liqueur. It has lots of extraction in its layered, structured personality and should evolve for another 6-8 years. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from Maipo in Chile. 2003 Concha y Toro Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon Puente Alto Vineyard 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

With a great nose of currant confiture and cocoa powder, this full-scale Cabernet sports dark fig, currant and blackberry fruit, layered with loam, cedar, tobacco, mineral and coffee. Long and authoritative finish sails on, thanks to rather regal tannins. VINTAGE NOTES The 2003 vintage was long and warm, but had cool nights, allowing for ideal ripening. Winemaker Enrique Tirado added 5 percent Cabernet Franc and aged the wine in French oak barrels (60 percent new) for 14 months.
