The wine from this vintage shows an extraordinary elegance with an abundance of fresh red fruit and notes of blackcurrants and flowers. On the palate, it has an enormous wealth of flavors, with breadth from beginning to end, and plenty of energy in perfect balance with the elegance of the textures and flavors.
Aging: 15 months in French oak barrels (72% new and 28% second use)

5 reviews for Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

  1. WS

    A standout red, offering svelte entry but quickly accelerating to a rich and well-structured state, built around never wavering flavors of black cherry, plum and baking spice, which gain dimension from fresh mineral acidity and subtle loam and bay leaf nuances. Ends with rich, well-integrated and mouthcoating tannins as well as hints of cocoa. Drink now.

  2. WA

    There is a little more ripeness in the 2019 Don Melchor, which in warmer years shows notes of ripe plums and is subtly balsamic. The palate is round and powerful, with good balance and nice integration of the oak. As usual, there is a combination of elegance and power, with subtle mintiness and harmony.

  3. JS

    Very perfumed and aromatic with blackcurrant, sweet-tobacco and Spanish-cedar character. Full-bodied with ultra fine tannins that build on the palate and take the fruit and other flavors to an endless finish. More refined than the perfect 2018 and almost as compelling. Drink in 2023 or after.

  4. VIN

    The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Don Melchor is also 5% Cabernet Franc, 2% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot and spent 15 months in 75% new French barrels. Vivid garnet in color. The rich, complex nose presents notes of black currant, mint, and hints of balsam and ash over a bed of oak and a whiff of cedar. In the mouth, hefty volume, fine-grained tannins and a broad expression combine, supported by a structure that is rather delicate for a wine of this intensity. The long-lasting finish ends with an aftertaste of fruit and mint before the oak has the final say. This will grow in the bottle.

  5. WIL

    The 2019 Don Melchor stands tall as one of the world’s top Cabernet Sauvignons, competing well against Bordeaux, Napa Valley, Red Mountain, and other major Cabernet enclaves. TASTING NOTES: This wine excels with aromas and flavors of ripe fruit, dried earth, dust, wild herbs, and oak. Enjoy it with rosemary and garlic-infused roast leg of lamb.

Tasting Panel
The Don Melchor Vineyard lies at the foot of the Andes on the northern bank of the Maipo River, over 2,000 feet above sea level; this wine reflects that dramatic terrain. The velvetlined curtains open with streamlined notes of black coffee before plum and chocolate take center stage with spice and cedar. A magnificent performance featuring kirsch on the finish and cameos by Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot.

Jancis Robinson
Intense rich black fruits on the nose, dense with spicy oak and a touch of vanilla. Having just seen the 2010, this needs some time and that oak will integrate seamlessly. Ripe and round with a touch of fresh pyrazine and a firm acid backbone. This will be even more delightful in a few years.

Puente Alto, situated in the Maipo Valley, holds a rich history as one of the first regions in Chile to be recognized for its unique terroir and high-quality wine production.
