Tasting Note

Concha y Toro's flagship Cabernet Sauvignon, Don Melchor comes from 25-year-old vines in the Maipo Valley's Puente Alto vineyard. The 2003 vintage was long and warm, but cool nights allowed for ideal ripening. The Don Melchor, which contains 5 percent Cabernet Franc and was aged in French oak for 14 months, is our highest-rated Chilean wine to date.
