jamessuckling.com, July 2015
Gorgeous aromas of eucalyptus, black currants, berries and stones. Medium to full body, fine tannins and tension. Firm, caressing texture. This remains one of the top cabs of Chile as always. Better in 2017.

This year only has 1% Cabernet Franc blended in -- one of the lower, if not the lowest years ever. With time, the more balsamic aromas emerge, which also gives some brightness and light to the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with some sweet fruit and the core of fine-grained, classical Cabernet tannins. This is a fresh, elegant vintage of Don Melchor, a prototype Cabernet from Alto Maipo. - Luis Gutierrez collapse

Deep, dense aromas of floral berry fruits and tarry darkness are solid and complete. Pure, elegant and confident across the palate, this delivers firm cassis, plum and cherry flavors backed by a toasty finish accented by licorice. This is rich and brawny but not heavy; drink through 2023. collapse

(18/20) Blackish crimson. A bit more mono-dimensional blackcurrant than the 2010. Big and super fruity. Acidity is a little more marked than in 2010. Reasonably fine tannins.

Acidity is a little more marked than in 2010. Reasonably fine tannins. A little less voluptuous and obvious than the 2010 but it may well last longer and develop into something regal. There’s still the note of fermented blackcurrant pastilles. Very refined. collapse
