Excellent value...maybe the best "quality per dollar" cab around. Smokey dark chocolate, plush tannins...not too harsh thanks to 10% merlot infused in. Tastes like a 30-40 dollar Napa Cab, all for less than 20 bucks. You won't be disappointed!

Little murky on the nose off a pop n' pour, with a good amount of soil and some funk showing along with red fruits. This blew off after 15-20 minutes, and the soil gradually gave way to the red fruits. A pleasant wine, above average but well short of outstanding.

a-m-a-z-i-n-g. Probably the best "value" wine I've ever tasted. Perfume, chocolate cherries on the nose, black cherry fruit reduction taste with an espresso finish. Delicious and exciting.

We drink this one at least once a week, as well as some of the other Montes Alpha which are also great deals. The Shiraz especially.

Intense ruby-red color. The nose is packed with layers of caramel cinnamon candy and hints of mint with a prevalence of fruit over oak. A spicy full-flavored wine with good body fruit and firm tannins. An engaging and strong finish. Well recommended for ageing. Denomination of Origin: Colchagua Valley.

A bold and elegant, well-structured Cabernet with fine flavors of blackberries, leather and a touch of coffee.

From the oldest Cabernet vines in Chile, 80-100 years old. Stunning cassis, cedar, and blackberry perfume. Rich soft and elegant. Layers of complexity on the finish. Super buy!

89 Pts. Jay Miller- The Wine Advocate Review: The Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon has considerably more weight than the Merlot. The fruit is darker with a quality nose of cedar, leather, espresso, and black currants. The wine’s texture is supple and there is enough tannin to support 2-3 years of cellaring. This well-made Cabernet can be enjoyed through 2020. Match: Steak, Lamb, BBQ
