With its usual ruby-red colour, this Cabernet Sauvignon strongly shows its Colchagua DNA with potent notes of ripe red fruits, cherries in syrup, blackcurrants, and a touch of jam. Its 12 months in contact with French oak lent complexity with clear dairy notes, a touch of nutmeg, and rich toast. Like the best Cabernets, a touch of tobacco is intermingled with its fruity character. The palate is well balanced with round tannins, good general structure, and a long and elegant finish.

Country Of Origin: Chile
Montes was established in 1988 by Aurelio Montes, Douglas Murray, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, with the aim to produce the best wines in Chile from the best regions. Their wines are consistently good because they are meticulous throughout the entire production process. They learned, when they started producing Montes Alpha, that they needed balanced yields and to harvest when the grapes were ripe. They adapted these practices to all their vineyards and the results are startling. Montes' own vineyards cover 75% of their requirements. The other 25% of fruit is produced on vineyards they have planted, cultivated and picked. In other words, they control everything except the ownership of the land. In addition to this control over the vineyard, they also sell in bulk what is not good enough to go into the bottles that carry their label. Having made the selection in the vineyard, they are able to make a further selection in the winery. The results are there for you to taste.
