Vina Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||Chile, Maipo Valley, Puente Alto|
|Brand||Vina Don Melchor|
Deep purple red. The wine of this vintage shows an extraordinary elegance with an abundance of fresh red fruit along with notes of currants and flowers. In the mouth it has a wealth of flavors, with breadth from beginning to end, there is a lot of energy in perfect balance with the fineness of the textures and flavors.
The nose of this flavorful red opens up with raspberry, cherry, licorice and peppercorn aromas. Well-integrated tannins are smooth and provide a good structure to the palate. Black and red fruit appear alongside dried herbs and vanilla flavors. It has depth and is balanced, with a lingering spiciness on the finish.
This standout red offers svelte entry but quickly accelerates to a rich and well-structured palate, built around flavors of black cherry, plum and baking spices that never waver, gaining dimension from fresh mineral acidity and subtle loam and bay leaf nuances. Ends with rich, well-integrated and mouth coating tannins as well as hints of cocoa. Drink now through 2028.
