Montes Cabernet Alpha 2009
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.
External Reviews for Montes Cabernet Alpha
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.
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.
Deeply colored with aromas of caramel, cinnamon and mint, this full-bodied wine has mellow flavor, depth and an attractive finish. Enjoy with grilled veal chops or chicken livers sauteacute;ed with mushrooms and madeira.
