External Reviews for Montes Merlot Alpha Chile Valle Central Rapel Colchagua Valley Red
Tasty mixed berry fruit gets a shading of roasted vanilla and briar on the open-knit finish.
Soft and ripe, with easy plum and red berry fruit. Hints of toast and herbs on the finish. Drink now.
Ripe with an abundance of jammy plum and blueberry flavors with hints of cinnamon and cloves in the finish.
Fresh, with open-knit berry fruit and good spice and toast notes. Finishes with a briery touch. Drink now.
WA 90 Pts - According to Wine Advocate: The 2008 Alpha Merlot is dark ruby red with an intriguing nose of cocoa/chocolate malt, a hint of herbs, cassis, and black cherry. Sweetly-fruited on the palate with a sense of elegance, this is a savory effort with good volume and a silky finish. It will offer enjoyment over the next 6-8 years. Rated 90+
Therersquo;s a Spanish accent to this spicy, cinnamon-scented red, with its smooth texture, predominant oak and sweet cherry flavors. Not an ager, it offers easy-drinking now.
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.
