Winemaker's Notes:

The 2003 vintage of this wine was ranked #4 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2006

Color: Bright ruby-red. Bouquet: Expressive and complex chocolate, black cherry and ripe plum mingle with coffee and cassis. Taste: Red fruit features in a dense, full-bodied wine whose fine, ripe tannins lead into a big, long and juicy finish.

Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon is appropriate with any hearty dish, especially lamb and steak.
