Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

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 floral 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.

 

The 2018 vintage received its best score to date from renowned critic James Suckling. For the first time and marking a historic milestone, Don Melchor 2018 awarded 100 points by the American critic James Suckling, the highest score a wine can ever receive.

In his assessment and while conducting a noteworthy tasting, the critic highlighted the wine as “amazing. The vitality and energy of this wine are dazzling—impressive complexity, flowers, blackcurrants, raspberries, and peaches. Full-bodied, though refined and polished with flawless texture and splendor. Delightful length. This great red is a tribute to balance, harmony, and finesse.”
