2009 Montes Alpha Carmenere Colchagua Valley 14.5%

Reticent on the nose with sweet aromas of coffee and cola plus a hint of rhubarb. This gains nice subtle nuance with some air. A bit tightly knit in the mouth, this is not a big wine, but it shows a bit of firmness to the tannins. There are nice layers of flavor here, dried herbs, well-judged oak, soft, warm red plum and cherry fruit. It's all knit together very well in an unassuming package. The finish is fairly long, and shows a lovely edge of sour berry fruits and nice ripe fruit tannins with just a hint of vanilla. Subtle and elegant. 88pts
