Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 90/100
A dark, charred black-fruited wine with loads of toasty oak. Smooth texture and full-bodied weight. Aromas of dark fruit and just the right amount of oak. Pair with a rare steak.
Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: rustic stews, meat lover's pizza, hard cheeses.

|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
This is one of Concha Y Toro's finest wines. It comes from a small sub-appellation within the Maipo area, Puente Alto. This blend contains small portions of Cabernet Franc. It helps the aromatics be a bit more lifted and it also delivers some acidity and herbal goodness.
Deep, hedonistic garnet, with an opaque core. Well extracted and rich.
High alcohol and perhaps somewhat apparent on the nose. Minty, with a pronounced chocolate nib, cardamom, tobacco, pomegranate, cassis, and plum.
The flavours are pure and complex. I always find wines from this area have a lot of mintiness and savouriness.
Replays of tobacco and pomegranate. After Eight chocolate, anise, and thyme. Cassis, cranberry, and bramble on the finish.
This would be a good pairing for beef wellington, or even a rather decadent match for exotic game, like moose.
|From Puente Alto Vineyards, Concha Y Toro Don Melchor (2013) Cabernet Sauvignon is full-bodied, smooth and toasty. Lots of intense dark fruit, spice and dried tobacco leaf on this elegant 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Cabernet Franc red wine blend. Tannins are firm. Decant one hour prior to serving with grilled sirloin stead of hold for three years. - Community Wine Reviews|
