Fabre Mont Malbec Gran 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby red color, leaning to very dark, intense red. Powerful but elegant flavors, with plumy and blackberry hints. A wonderful butterscotch and slight spicyness is totally integrated by the subtil notes of vainilla that comes from the oak aging. A full-bodied wine, with ripe tannins and voluptuous mid-palate and a long, very enjoyable, finish.

One of Chile’s most renowned winemakers – Auriello Montes Sr. – blazed the path of bringing his country’s premium selections to the world when he joined forces with wine industry vet Douglas Murray and partners Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand in 1988. Together, they formed Viña Montes, which became the standard for premium Chilean wines with the introduction of Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon. In the quarter century since then, the company has been instrumental in raising awareness, affinity, and acclaim for Chilean wines in over 100 countries worldwide. Hailing from Apalta in Chile’s Cochalgua Valley, Viña Montes produces 950,000 cases annually through its vineyards La Finca de Apalta (in Apalta); El Arcangel Estate (in Marchigue); and Los Nogales Estate (in Curico). Among the company labels are Montes Alpha “M,” Montes Folly, Purple Angel, Montes Alpha, Montes Classic Series, Montes Cherub, and Montes Twins. In 2004, a new cellar was created at Apalta through an investment of more than US$7 million. Chilean architect Samuel Claro, from the Claro and Swinburn Agency, created the space, which was decorated by Paula Gutierrez, a nationally renowned designer. Here, technology and equipment reside in a peaceful environment incorporating Feng Shui elements – water, air, metal and wood- to encourage harmony and a positive atmosphere, enhancing the total experience and resulting wines.

A blast of earth, minerals and leather greets you as the inky dark wine swirls in the glass. Entry is just as pleasant for those who prefer an earthier wine. Even some green pepper mid-palate adds to the enjoyment. Despite the quick finish, this can easily be enjoyed alone or with a spicy dish. Would be a great tapas caliente companion.

86 Points - Jay Miller Wine Advocate The 2008 Malbec Classic Series is a fruity, forward expression of this increasingly popular grape. It has a degree of elegance, spicy, black cherry flavors, good

Im Gaumen angenehm weich, samtige Textur, erdige Süße, Irish Moos, noch sanft aufrauend, im Finale Rosinentöne, die Harmonie fehlt ein wenig.

86 Points - Jay Miller Wine Advocate The 2008 Malbec Classic Series is a fruity, forward expression of this increasingly popular grape. It has a degree of elegance, spicy, black cherry flavors, good balance, and a fruity finish. Drink it over the next three years. Aurelio Montes remains one of Chile's great innovators and quality leaders. His latest releases are first class from entry level to the top of the portfolio.
