Grenache Merlot Caves des Vignerons du Mont Ventoux 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Dunkles Rubin, granatfarbene Nuancen. Köstliches Bouquet nach Heidelbeeren und Pflaumen, gepaart mit feinen Röstaromen, Schokolade und Kakao. Zwetschgen und etwas schwarzer Holunder im elegant komponierten Gaumen, rund und gleichzeitig sehr kraftvoll, von exzellenter Tanninstruktur und guter Wärme; lange anhaltendes, harmonisches Finale.

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.

Gold medal at the 2011 Riverside International Wine Competition, Silver medal at the 2011 NextGen Wine Competition, Silver medal at the Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers Association 2011 Commercial Wine Competition, Silver medal at the 2012 San Francisco Wine Competition, and Silver medal at the 2011 West Coast Wine Competition. Big and deliciously smooth Merlot with a deep burgundy color, a wonderful plum/blackberry flavor, and a smoky, earthy aroma. This wine is a perfect balance between fruit, oak, and tannins. Single varietal, single vineyard. 100% Merlot. Ready to drink now and can be cellared for future enjoyment. Pair with grilled meat or game or with a favorite dark chocolate treat.

A bit rugged to start with, with solid berry and crusty dark aromatics. The palate has good size and cushion, with a creamy feel housing soft baked plum, herb, cough drop and vanilla flavors. A little woody on the finish, which fades with a modicum of grace. Neither edgy nor aggressive.

The 2008 Merlot Classic Series is a pleasant spicy offering with savory red fruit flavors but a slightly gritty finish. Drink it over the next 2andndash;3 years.

Tasty mixed berry fruit gets a shading of roasted vanilla and briar on the open-knit finish.
