Tasting Notes and Description
Tasting Notes For Concha y Toro Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Deep cherry red in color, Don Melchor captivates with its balanced, depth, and complexity. The aromas of red fruits delicately intermingle with mineral notes that recall cold ashes and pencil lead. Fine, delicate textures appear on the palate and show this to be an ample, deep wine with a smooth, fine attack followed by an intense, mouth-filling evolution. Concentrated, expressive, and generous in flavors and aromas with a long finish dominated by the balance and elegance of the various layers of flavors.
Pair with red meats (beef and lamb) and game in different preparations, such as roasts, stews, or braises with red wine, mushrooms, rosemary, and tomatoes. Also pairs very well with assorted terrines and patés, especially duck with truffles, or with aged, dried, or creamy cow’s or goat’s milk cheeses.
Blend: 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot
