The vineyard sits on the banks of the Maipo river, at the foot at the foot of the Andes Mountains. With loamy soils, and a Mediterranean climate, the pieces are in place for exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon. Bright red berries on the aromatics, with deep cherry and subtle black fruit flavors. A mouth coating palate that finishes elegantly, enveloped in delicate tannin. This is perfection folks!

 Fantastic aromas of blackcurrants and other dark fruit with crushed stone, iron and oysters, following through to a full body that shows incredible energy and depth, offering ripe yet fresh fruit, together with bright herbs and earth. Precision and balance of the intensity of the vintage. Layered. Perhaps the greatest Don Melchor ever made.
