Cabernet-Sauvignon Montes Alpha Santa Cruz Chile 2010
Difficult to fault this wine - both in terms of quality and value for money. This wine is an excellent demonstration of what Chile can do really well. If any of your friends or guests are doubtful about Chilean wine, ask them to try this. I recently gave this 18/20. The quality of the wine making shows through - excellent clean, forward berries fruit with a lovely 'New World' capsicum nose, with toasted notes and cassis. Very good finish, excellent balance - drink now. For the red wine drinker, I can't think of a better value wine generally available in the UK. I guess it's selected parcels of young vines. I am not sure if it will age but who cares?
This full bodied wine showed notes of leather, vanilla, chocolate, and cherries on the nose and palate. The fruit was sweet red and black plums, there was some light baking spices, and firm tannins. This was one of the more full-bodied wines of the tasting and recommended.
Three and a half glasses

Dunkles Rubinrot. Ein trockener, ziemlich komplexer Wein mit einem starken Aroma von schwarzen Johannisbeeren, weiche Tannine geben den Charakter, ein Wein mit einem langanhaltenden Abgang.
