Don Melchor 1998 wine review by (PB)
Concha Y Toro, the solid Chilean producer of value wines makes this premium red (Cabernet Sauvignon) that is solid garnet to the rim. It is somewhat closed on opening but shows elegant pipe tobacco and leather fragrances.
In the mouth this wine is elegant with silky tannins and slight licorice notes, black cherry fruit and smoke. This wine is awesome. If you wonder what a "round" wine is, this is it! Everything is just right, balanced, fully integrated and together.
Always a great value, this wine at $40 is a bargain for what you get. Raise a glass and "Thanks (NW)!"
