User Reviews for Montes Cabernet Sauvignon Colchagua Valley Alpha Apalta Vineyard

Winemaker's Notes:

Description: 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. Denomination of Origin: 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. Filtering: One very light filtering. Yield of Vineyard: About 7 tons per hectare (2,8 tons per acre). Grape Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon 90% + Merlot 10%. Cellaring Recommendations: 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. Recommended Serving Temperature: 17º to 18ºC. Decanting: Yes, for at least 30 minutes, preferrably one hour.
