Montes Alpha M 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

88 points Wine Enthusiast: Earthy, baked aromas of ripe berry, raisin and leather come with a tobacco note. This is nice given the cold weather that drove the 2011 vintage. Round tannins and overall balance provide bedding for spicy flavors of blackberry, herbal notes, licorice and oak. Alcohol 14.5%. (Mar 2014)

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.

A wine of deep and live ruby red color that has a very elegant and evident Carmenere tipicity, showing lovely black-fruit aromas with hints of blueberries, dark chocolate, vanilla and black plums accompanied by a touch of black pepper. In the mouth is distinctively smooth, mouth filling, with gentle, rounded and soft tannins and a long finish, while the oak is beautifully integrated and balanced. The fruit is sourced from a cool climate terrior delivering robust wines while maintaining Carmenere's trademark tannin softness producing a rich, savory and elegant wine. 10% Cabernet is added for additional complexity and increased cellaring potential. - Winery ** Only 4 in Stock **
