Deep cherry-red. Intense and complex, with very evenly ripe fruit and pronounced blackberry, blueberry, and blackcurrant aromas that meld with notes of fine chocolate and tobacco. Big-bodied, well-structured, and nicely concentrated, with good balance and elegance. The degree of ripeness and quality of the tannins is a firm reminder of the personality of the Cabernet Sauvignon from Puente Alto.

Wine EnthusiastDeep, a bit reduced on the nose, and full as can be, with blackberry, cassis and prune aromas. The palate is super rich and concentrated, and frankly a bit heady. Flavors of burnt brown sugar, toast, tobacco, pepper and baked berry fruits are delicious, and the finish is dense and long. Drinkable now but best in another two to four years. This marks the 20th anniversary of Concha y Toro's Don Melchor Cabernet.

Wine SpectatorStill a touch tight, but dense, focused and layered, with well-integrated structure underneath loam, blackberry, espresso, tobacco and sage notes. The long finish has nice drive, with the loam edge stretching out. This has the poise and balance for cellaring. Drink now through 2017.
