Score: 94

Opens with crusty, rock-solid aromas of mineral, shoe polish, herb and dense black fruit. This is a thick but smooth-bodied Cabernet with richness and sweet flavors of blackberry, cassis, fine herbes and brown sugar. Mild tannins, excellent structure and length define the finish. Drink now through 2016.

Wine Advocate
Score: 92

The 2008 Don Melchor is a blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc that is aged for 15 months in French oak (72% new and 28% one-year old.) It has a crisp, precise nose of blackberry, fish scale and fresh black olives. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins on the entry. It is grippy in the mouth with good weight, but manages to retain fine focus and builds nicely to a citrus-fresh finish with touches of orange peel and marmalade. Drink 2014-2020. 

Wine Spectator
Score: 94

This ripe, dense red delivers base notes of humus, mocha and toasty oak supporting the rich cassis, black cherry and dark plum fruit character. There's fine tannins for support, but this is all rich fruit on the spicy finish. Drink now through 2018. 13,000 cases made.

Concha y Toro Review

Deep cherry-red color. Elegant and complex nose, with ripe red fruit, cedar, tobacco and chocolate notes. Well-structured and nicely concentrated, firm and full-bodied. With long finish and good balance.
