Monte Quieto Malbec Argentina Argentina 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

This Malbec is a full-bodied, round, soft and generous red wine with strong spicy character. Grapes are from vines that are close to 100 years old in the well reputed Colchagua Valley. The wine is 100% Malbec and has been aged for six months in new and used American oak. It is a ruby red color, leaning to very dark, intense red. Powerful but elegant flavors, with plumy and blackberry hints characterise the nose. A wonderful butterscotch and slight spicyness is totally integrated by the subtle notes of vanilla that comes from the oak aging. This is a full-bodied wine, with ripe tannins and voluptuous mid-palate and a long, very enjoyable, finish. Drink it with red meat, game, pasta, rice and strongly sauced dishes.

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.

I really like this, it is my first Chilean Malbec, and for the price tag of $9 this is very classy and complex. Beautiful color of dark purple, earthy and leathery aroma with hints of blackberry, oak, tar, and gasoline. Notes of spice, leather, tar, blackberries and a very smooth finish. It must have really aged well since 07. Highly recommended, and I am thinking of going out and buying a few more bottles, which I rarely do because I always like to try new things. But considering the price tag on this one it's a great value.

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

Almost opaque garnet, scent of woodlands and leather, fine tannins, structured, lush, taste of earth, cedar, black berries. A solid wine that should age well.

Malbec Reserva 2007 - Montes: Malbec Reserva 2007 - Rotwein von MontesDie Reben für diesen Montes Malbec Reserva aus dem berühmten Colchagua Valley Chiles sind fast 100 Jahre alt. Im Glas leuchtet der Wein in einem freundlichen Rubinrot an. Den Gaumen verwöhnen Fruchtaromen, angeführt von Pflaume und Brombeere. Seine leichte Würze ist schön integriert in Noten von Vanille, die aus der Eichenholzreife resultieren. Dieser schwere Wein begeistert mit reifen Tanninen, ist am mittleren Gaumen sehr sinnlich und zum Ende hin erfreulich lang anhaltend. Gerichte aus dunklem Fleisch wie Wild, Pasta, Reis und Speisen mit viel Soße eignen sich zu diesem Malbec am besten.    Weingut: MontesLand: ChileRegion: Colchagua ValleyRebsorte: 100% MalbecAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol. %Inhalt: 0,75 lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (6 Monate) Lagerfähigkeit: 5 - 7 Jahre ab Jahrgang Rotwein > Chile > Colchagua Valley
