This Cabernet Sauvignon shows the fresh expression of red fruits mixed with mineral notes and graphite, resulting in a complex and diverse expression of its aromas. On its palate, it stands out for the great balance between its refined tannins and its freshness, as well as its good concentration. A dense wine, with a long persistence.

JS99 - James Suckling
Fantastic aromas of blackcurrants and other dark fruit with crushed stone, iron and oysters, following through to a full body that shows incredible energy and depth, offering ripe yet fresh fruit, together with bright herbs and earth. Precision and balance of the intensity of the vintage. Layered. Perhaps the greatest Don Melchor ever made.
WS95 - Wine Spectator
Suave, complex and elegant, with fine-grained tannins supporting the dried cherry, red plum and currant flavors. Cedar and forest floor notes show midpalate, leading to a long finish of cocoa powder and baker's chocolate details, accented by hints of apple wood smoke and white pepper.
RP94 - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Marking its 30th anniversary, the 2017 Don Melchor was produced 30 years after the initial 1987. This is a wine that transcends vintages and shows great regularity, always combining elegance and power, with subtle mintiness and superb elegance. It's juicy, textured and velvety. This is a superb showing in 2017, a warm year and a fresh wine. Bravo!
