Don Melchor is a bright ruby red. Expressive and complex chocolate, black cherry and ripe plum mingle with coffee and cassis aromas. Full bodied with red fruit flavors and ripe tannins that lead to a long and juicy finish.
The wine was aged for 15 months in 78% new French oak. It sports an incipiently complex bouquet of toasty oak, pencil lead, exotic spices, incense, violets, and black currant, and blackberry. Structured and styled much like a classified growth Medoc, it has the balance to evolve for at least 6-8 years.
