Consequently, its vineyards are the northernmost of Mexico's and the distance from the ocean is between 15 and 20 kilometers. The vines are at altitudes between 300 and 400 meters above sea level.

The Valle de Guadalupe is located 30 kilometers inland from Ensenada, on Mexico's Pacific Coast, 100 km south of the border with the United States. Consequently, its vineyards are the northernmost of Mexico's and the distance from the ocean is between 15 and 20 kilometers. The vines are at altitudes between 300 and 400 meters above sea level. The proximity to the Pacific Ocean provides humid currents that result in a microclimate in the valley. Today the Valle de Guadalupe is Mexico's most prestigious wine region, and home to 90% of the top wines of Mexico. Read less

Fairly simple cab, not a lot going on but not bad for a mid-week quaff at a good price.

Personally, I find this wine deeper in flavors with a medium tannin structure, ripe fruit with a medium finish. However, I do believe that a little more time in the bottle will round out the wine. For the price; Good Value

The 2011 Montes Classic Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with 15% Merlot and offers a simple black currant, vanilla and violet bouquet that is joyful and well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannin, crisp raspberry and dark cherry fruit, zesty acidity and lovely focus on the finish. At this price, it would be hard to find a better Cabernet. Drink now-2016. ** SOLD OUT **

A good value in a classic, not-too-heavy Cabernet that appeals to pretty much everyone. Bright red currant and black cherry notes dominate, with fresh mouthfeel and smooth tannins.

This is fresh though with plenty of the classic exoticism that almost always marks the nose of a fine Mont de Milieu. There is a beguiling succulence to the round but powerful and well-concentrated medium-bodied flavors that exude a distinct saline character on the extract rich and exceptionally persistent finish. This is terrific and worth your attention. - Comments: Sweet spot Outstanding Burghound.
