Montes Malbec Reserve 750m 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

A full-bodied, round, soft and generous red wine with strong spicy character. The wine is 100% Malbec. Ruby red color, leaning to very dark, intense red showing powerful but elegant flavors, with plumy and blackberry hints accompanied by wonderful butterscotch flavors and a slight spiciness that is totally integrated with the subtle notes of vanilla that comes from six months of oak aging. Grapes are from vines that are close to 100 years old in the well reputed Colchagua valley, producing a smooth and lush, full-bodied wine, with ripe tannins and voluptuous mid-palate and a long, very enjoyable, finish. Recommended for pairing it with red meat, game, pasta, rice and strongly sauced dishes or as wine by the glass.

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.

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.
