James Suckling Review
This is amazing. The vibrancy and energy in this wine is stunning. The complexity of aromas are breathtaking with flowers, blackcurrants, raspberries and peaches. Full-bodied, yet ever so refined and polished with impeccable texture and beauty. The length is marvelous. This is a testimony to balance, harmony and transparency in a great red. Drink after 2023.
2018 is one of the greatest vintages in the history of Don Melchor. A highly expressive wine, with great personality and complexity. The wine shows lots of expression and complexity of small red fruits, as well as oral notes displayed as a whole. On the palate, the wine is full of flavor and dominated by elegance and balance, as well as a great texture of the tannins, with a long, refined finish. Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon is perfect pairing for red meats, especially lamb, and wild game: baked, stewed, or prepared with red wine sauces, mushrooms, rosemary and tomatoes. Different terrines and pates, like turkey with truffles. Cow and goat cheeses; dry and mature cheeses, or creamy cheeses.
