Montes Merlot Alpha 2012
Rubinrot. Starke Aromen von roten Beeren, schwarzen Kirschen und schwarzem Pfeffer. Im Gaumen ein wohlschmeckender körperreicher Wein mit Geschmacksnoten von Vanille und Toast, mit einem langanhaltenden Abgang.Add winemaker's notes
deep color, subtle fuits, low tannins, smooth in finish, nothing offends
Spicy wine with notes of some red fruit. Ok, not great.
Very rich, stewed in sweet plumbs, oaky full body. Very yummy and drinkable.
This is probably a great wine for people who love complex acidic wines that offer many different tastes. This wine smells and tastes like a Cab Sav to me, and is a great wine for heavy steaks, etc... I however am not a fan, like my Syrah's to be more balanced and possess more silky tannins.
Good for everyday, but really over oaked

Perked up by bright berry and cherry flavors, with a pleasant hint of chocolate on the finish. Itrsquo;s fresh, lively and harmonious.
A bit earthy in color; itrsquo;s not your average bright ruby. The nose is more refined and condensed than one might expect, with subdued scents of raspberry, plum and cola. Suave in terms of texture, and long on the finish.
Jammy style, with raspberry and plum flavors and a dose of toast. Chunky, with moderate grip in the end, so drink up with barbecue. Drink now.
Montes has produced a young Merlot with some oak aging. It is elegant, refined with a marked fruitiness almost irresistible to Merlot lovers and to those who sample it for the first time. One can detect notes of strong, spicy black pepper, full of harmony and soft to the palate. A blending of 15% Cabernet Sauvignon with this Merlot marries with the oak, and gives structure and finesse that will also permit long term aging.
A bit rugged to start with, with solid berry and crusty dark aromatics. The palate has good size and cushion, with a creamy feel housing soft baked plum, herb, cough drop and vanilla flavors. A little woody on the finish, which fades with a modicum of grace. Neither edgy nor aggressive.
Fresh and very flavorful, like blackberry jam without the sweetness. Deep purple in color, peppery in aroma, smooth and lush in texture. Not tannic, so itrsquo;s ready to drink. Good value and enjoyment mdash; what the Chileans do best.
