Concha y Toro 1997 Private Reserve Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon (Maipo Valley)

Bacon and lavender are prominent on the meaty, slightly muddled nose, which unfolds gracefully if given lots and lots of time. Blackberry and some tannins up front, a fairly nice and buttery middle, and finally cola accents on the grapy, heavy, long finish. For years this was C&T's top effort, before Almaviva.
