Gorgeous nose of black currant preserves and freshly roasted coffee with a powerful yet very silky palate of cassis plum blackberry loam mineral and dark chocolate flavors that glide through a superlong finish. Don't be deceived by its seeming accessibility though--there's some iron-clad structure underneath for the long haul as well. Drink now through 2012. 13500 cases made. (JM)

It has a spicy pain grille accented nose with plenty of mineral cassis and black currant making their presence known. The wine is medium to full-bodied in an elegant St.-Julien style. This layered lengthy effort will continue to develop for another 6-8 years and drink well through 2027. Importer: Banfi Vintners Oldbrookville NY; tel. (516) 686-2502

After a complicated 2000, Don Melchor is back. Grown at El Tocornal vineyard, at 2,200 feet in the cool breezes of the Andes, the newest version of this classic Alto Maipo cabernet is firm and round, ripe and elegant. The texture is generous, the firm tannic structure releasing cassis and blueberry flavors as the wine takes on oxygen. The fresh acidity, along with the juiciness and massive attack of the fruit, points to a great cabernet vintage in Maipo. You may want to lay this down and allow its complexity to develop.

Aromas of sweet flowers, sweet tea and cedar follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Slightly drying tannins now but an attractive wine.

Slightly drying tannins now but an attractive wine. A blend of 91% cabernet sauvignon and 9% cabernet franc. Needs drinking.

Blackberry and cherry, vanilla, smoked bacon, lengthy and expressive with aromatic finish, concentrated fruit, high acid and alcohol and plenty of bottle age to come. Meaty, earthy, ripe - delicious. 17.5+/20 (RH)
