Montes Cabernet Alpha 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

89 points Jay Miller (Wine Advocate): Dense, sweet, layered, lots of flavor, over-delivers. (Oct 2010) Intense ruby-red color. The nose is packed with layers of caramel, cinnamon, candy and hints of mint, with a prevalence of fruit over oak. A spicy, full-flavored wine, with good body, fruit and firm tannins. An engaging and strong finish.

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.

This wine blends ripe cherry flavors, sweet spices and youthful tannin. Serve it with a steak.

Shows a tasty mix of freshly crushed red berry and blackberry fruit, with a touch of toast and a hint of grilled herbs. Drink now.

Fruchtiger, kräftiger Auftakt, komplexe Aromatik. Voller, gut ausgewogener Körper mit langanhaltendem Abgang. Wein mit Alterungspotential.

The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Classic Series is round, ripe, and forward in an uncomplicated style. The flavors are attractive and the wine has a pure, fruit-filled finish. It is a very good value in Cabernet.

From Chile, this affordable red shows dark plum and cassis aromas and flavors, with a touch of smoky bacon fat adding interest. Itrsquo;s chewy and muscular, with a briery note throughout. Drink now through 2001.

Therersquo;s a slight resinous quality to this red, accenting the juicy cherry, mint and herb flavors. Moderate concentration and structure. Drink now.
