(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.
