Concha Y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon Puente Alto Don Melchor 1988
It's old style, with some rusticity and developed aromas including iron, truffles, brick dust and some paprika. The palate is polished and sleek, fully resolved and with very good acidity. This is ready but in no danger of declining any time soon. This was really surprising. Delicious classical Maipo Cabernet with its minty touch. RP

This beauty additionally possesses a long, pure, and soft finish. RP
The palate is round and powerful, with good balance and nice integration of the oak. As usual, there is a combination of elegance and power, with subtle mintiness and harmony.
Concha Y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon Puente Alto Don Melchor 2006
The 2006 Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon is a glass-coating opaque purple with an alluring bouquet of toast, tobacco, cedar, leather, mocha, and blackcurrant. Sweet, voluptuous (but not in a fruit bomb kind of way), layered, and complex already, its superb balance will ensure at least a decade of evolution and it should drink well through 2036. RP
Inviting aromas of chocolate-covered cherry, dried rose petal and petrichor set the stage for this well-structured red, which balances concentrated berry and mission fig flavors against vibrant acidity, lending a lush, mouthwatering quality to a finish that swirls with cassis, spices and fine tannins.
