On the palate quite dark fruits , cassis , spiced plum , roasted peppers , with those coffee notes. Quite sweet on the mid palate with ripe but still noticeable tannin, good balanced and acidity and balanced alcohol . Pretty decent length with a leather , coffee tinged finish . Still drinking very well , and will do over the next 5-8 years . — a month ago

These are great, my 90's bottles are long gone, wish I still had, only 2001 forward now.

Young and silky fruit balanced by a subtle, wise umami bready hit.

Effervescence meets earth. Fun and well-formed, but also shifting with time. A wine for those who've long since run out of love for "fresh" boring berries and oak blasts, that are actually ploughed with additives. This natural one has an opinion about life and is the more beautiful for it.

Can't wait to see what it ages into tomorrow as well, if the 1L bottle lasts that long.

Don Melchor Puente Alto Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Great vintage for this wine. Could have seen more years in bottle easily but desirable nonetheless. High altitude cab blend with lots fruit, oak, and light spice notes. Cheers. — a month ago
