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.

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+

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.

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.

Fresh, with open-knit berry fruit and good spice and toast notes. Finishes with a briery touch. Drink now.
