Tasting Notes: Refined and elegant, with silky tannins behind the mineral, macerated cherry and damson plum flavors. Quite creamy, revealing hints of paprika and hoisin sauce. The long, lush finish is filled with notes of cocoa powder and dust. Drink now through 2020. 10,100 cases made. — KM
Galaxy Notes: 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc Aged 15 months in French oak Don Melchor is a hearty assemblage of Cabernet Sauvignons originating from distinct, yet contiguous sub-divided blocks. Some years, small quantities from the 7 hectares of Cabernet Franc are added. Over the years, slight differences have been noted in six sections of the Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Each contributes something special to the final blend. Nevertheless, every vine still delivers the distinctive style of this “contemporary classic”.
