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.

Dark and exotic on the nose with layers of oak, tropical flowers, pomegranate and zesty wild plums. Rich, powerful and a bit mysterious on entry, this shows slightly aggressive wood tannin today, adding a drying vein to the midpalate, but the fruit is so rich it’s easy to miss. Dark, slightly roasted flavors of black cherry and blackberry are enlivened with subtly toasty oak spice in the mouth, and a hint of vanilla on the backend before this fades away on a moderately long, slightly hot finish. Big and smooth. 88pts

This was the 2nd glass of wine with the Burger, very good, but not as great with the Burger as the 'Double C', but then the Bartender warned me that the Malbec would not be.

Vanilla, violets, blackberry and plum tie together to create an exciting and aromatic nose on this wine. And the flavors are just as fabulous, with plum, blackberry and dark chocolate adding some complexity.

Ein nachhaltiger, ausgewogener, gehaltvoller und fruchtiger Rotwein. Schwarzrot mit Violett-Reflexen. Mittelkräftiges, komplexes Bouquet. Grosse Fruchtfülle mit Dörrfrucht (Dörrpflaume), Beerenfrüchten (Brombeere, Heidelbeere) und Steinobst (Pflaume). Dazu gesellen sich Röstaromen (Kakao/Schokolade, Toastbrot) und Vanille. Im Gaumen leicht süsslicher Antrunk. Die Struktur des Weines ist weich, füllig und harmonisch. Im dominanten Rückgeruch wiederum viel Fruchtpower, Röstaromatik und Würze. Es kommt leichter Lederduft hinzu. Mittellanger Abgang.
