Almost red/violet in color, light can hardly pass though the wine. There is a nose of berries, spices, tobacco and earth in it. Very smooth and dry in taste and mouth-feel. This Malbec has a medium finish, and a bold final impression.

The acid is very strong for this wine. It's got a decent flavor for a malbec..... However my favorite part... the nose. There was this very suttle mint scent on the nose... I had to really search it out but I swear it's there.... mint! Good job Montes.

The flavor was rich with a smooth yet earthy finish. I rather enjoyed it especially with the meatballs that were provided with the sampling.

A blast of earth, minerals and leather greets you as the inky dark wine swirls in the glass. Entry is just as pleasant for those who prefer an earthier wine. Even some green pepper mid-palate adds to the enjoyment. Despite the quick finish, this can easily be enjoyed alone or with a spicy dish. Would be a great tapas caliente companion.

I really like this, it is my first Chilean Malbec, and for the price tag of $9 this is very classy and complex. Beautiful color of dark purple, earthy and leathery aroma with hints of blackberry, oak, tar, and gasoline. Notes of spice, leather, tar, blackberries and a very smooth finish. It must have really aged well since 07. Highly recommended, and I am thinking of going out and buying a few more bottles, which I rarely do because I always like to try new things. But considering the price tag on this one it's a great value.

Im Gaumen angenehm weich, samtige Textur, erdige Süße, Irish Moos, noch sanft aufrauend, im Finale Rosinentöne, die Harmonie fehlt ein wenig.

86 Points - Jay Miller Wine Advocate The 2008 Malbec Classic Series is a fruity, forward expression of this increasingly popular grape. It has a degree of elegance, spicy, black cherry flavors, good balance, and a fruity finish. Drink it over the next three years. Aurelio Montes remains one of Chile's great innovators and quality leaders. His latest releases are first class from entry level to the top of the portfolio.

Ruby red color leaning to very dark intense red. Powerful but elegant flavors with plumy and blackberry hints. A wonderful butterscotch and slight spicyness is totally integrated by the subtle notes of vanilla that comes from the oak aging. A full-bodied wine with ripe tannins and voluptuous mid-palate and a long very enjoyable finish. Drink it with red meat game pasta rice and strongly sauced dishes

Malbec Reserva 2007 - Montes: Malbec Reserva 2007 - Rotwein von MontesDie Reben für diesen Montes Malbec Reserva aus dem berühmten Colchagua Valley Chiles sind fast 100 Jahre alt. Im Glas leuchtet der Wein in einem freundlichen Rubinrot an. Den Gaumen verwöhnen Fruchtaromen, angeführt von Pflaume und Brombeere. Seine leichte Würze ist schön integriert in Noten von Vanille, die aus der Eichenholzreife resultieren. Dieser schwere Wein begeistert mit reifen Tanninen, ist am mittleren Gaumen sehr sinnlich und zum Ende hin erfreulich lang anhaltend. Gerichte aus dunklem Fleisch wie Wild, Pasta, Reis und Speisen mit viel Soße eignen sich zu diesem Malbec am besten.    Weingut: MontesLand: ChileRegion: Colchagua ValleyRebsorte: 100% MalbecAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol. %Inhalt: 0,75 lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (6 Monate) Lagerfähigkeit: 5 - 7 Jahre ab Jahrgang Rotwein > Chile > Colchagua Valley
