2011 Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon Review



This is the last of the Don Melchor in my fridge and my family better pray because shit is about to get real up in here.

This is a 99% Cab wine with a grape or two of Cab Franc thrown in for forced diversity / quota purposes. If you're not on the Don Melchor train there's not a lot I can do for you - stop being an asshole.

In da nose I got raspberries followed by some rich cocoa. One would say, "Darryl do you mean they are raspberries covered in chocolate?" No. Raspberries and cocoa. Just like that. In da mouf I got minerals up front followed by some wonderful pepper spice and a nice finish of black licorice. Another gem.

As per usual the price is going to be high on this one and if you can swing that cash dick then I'd recommend it. Very lovely wine and something you'll probably get some for if you play your cards right and make ya lover a steak.
