(From «nv» Vintage) 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.

Very quintessa like! Nose is similar but has a bit more earthy tone. Legs for days!!! And color is dark and blackberryesce. The taste starts and ends with vanilla but currants in between. Glad I drank it sad it was my last bottle.

Wine Spectator(From 2007 Vintage) "Still a touch tight, but dense, focused and layered, with well-integrated structure underneath loam, blackberry, espresso, tobacco and sage notes. The long finish has nice drive, with the loam edge stretching out. This has the poise and balance for cellaring. Drink now through 2017. 8,900 cases made."
