Montes Alpha Cabernet Cardboard 2004
Deep ruby red color, the expression of cabernet sauvignon is evident providing structure and elegance. Lots of berries fruits and hints of tobacco and vanilla. Promising abundant soft rounded tannins. The structure and balance of this full bodied wine makes it very pleasant and enjoyable. A very sophisticated wine with a delightfully long finish. Santa Cruz (Colchagua). The grapes come from our now famous “La Finca de Apalta” Estate, in the Apalta Valley, reputed to be the best for red wines in Chile. Can be enjoyed now or cellared for 10 years or more. Some vintages have proved very strong at 10 years, capable of several years more.
A surprisingly great wine for the price- had forgotten the price and was pleasantly surprised. We will be picking up some more bottles!
Very nice and elegant wine. Deep dark ruby-red color. In nose intense black fruits (current, cassis, cherries - forest fruits), dominant vanilla, caramel and dark cocoa. The barrique note is quite dominant but not overwhelming and helps creating a nice texture of the wine. In mouth pleasant herbal tannin, but not rough combined good with a slight sourness. Very long finish, a combination of fruitiness and spiciness. Good aging potential.
This a great wine and it give you more than the price represent. This is a great choice for meets.
