The 2000 Don Melchor vintage is medium to dark ruby/purple-colored. It reveals candied red fruit aromas and a majestically concentrated character. This jammy, cherry and raspberry-flavored wine has outstanding potential. It is spicy, broad-shouldered, and powerful. Projected maturity: 2008-2018.
The result is a rich, full-bodied wine with an unmistakable minty character in the bouquet and the finish. Drink with the finest roasts, and strong cheeses.
