Montes Alpha Cabernet Cardboard 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

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.

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.
