Personally, I find this wine deeper in flavors with a medium tannin structure, ripe fruit with a medium finish. However, I do believe that a little more time in the bottle will round out the wine. For the price; Good Value

My Rating 88: Well balanced body with good fruit and tannins. Nose balanced but with a hint of typical Chile wine. I don't know what it is but you could call this funky. Price is OK at Costco about $ 8

Ruby-red color that leaves legs down the side of the glass. Smells like fruity yet caramel and earth tones too. Nice oak that lingers. I would buy this again. i only paid $7!

Huge fruity cab, rivaling some of the California greats I've had that are between 3 and 5 times the price. Great spice up front but finishes with an incredible balance. Still can't believe this cost me ten bucks.

Wow, this was surprising. Very fruit-forward with a huge nose of cinnamon and cherries. But it isn't too jammy or sweet - very nice balance. Nice, long finish. Paid under $10 and it drinks like a $25 bottle.

Very nice. Very nice indeed. Lots of fruit, not jammy, dark fruit, velvety smooth. Bargain. Paid 9, taste like 20.

The 2011 Montes Classic Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with 15% Merlot and offers a simple black currant, vanilla and violet bouquet that is joyful and well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannin, crisp raspberry and dark cherry fruit, zesty acidity and lovely focus on the finish. At this price, it would be hard to find a better Cabernet. Drink now–2016.

A good value in a classic, not-too-heavy Cabernet that appeals to pretty much everyone. Bright red currant and black cherry notes dominate, with fresh mouthfeel and smooth tannins.

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.

Bright purple. Sexy, oak-spiced raspberry and blackberry aromas offers the clarity, intensity and visceral appeal of a $50 Napa wine; subtle floral and herbal qualities build with air. Fleshy and sweet, with deep dark berry liqueur flavors, no obvious tannins and a long, sappy finish. For fans of lush, jammy, fruit-driven wines, this is an absolute no-brainer.

The fact that the wine's bouquet is subdued and gentle is a bonus. This version offers some creamy oak character and smooth but simple berry flavors. Not stellar but not bad, either.
