Food Pairings for Montes Merlot Colchagua Valley Alpha
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
maple and berries in nose. Cocoa, vanilla, blueberry, but earthy and not oversweet. Finish medium length, dry with cocoa and berries.
1) Excellent Crimson Red Bright ruby Colour. Good Legs 2) Bouquet of Plum, Spice and Red berries and chocolate 3) Palate: Soft with Plum, spice and hint of strawberry, Cherry and mint. Good hint of Oak and Tobacco. 4) V well balanced with Excellent smooth finish with good length. Nice Silky and velvety aftertaste. 5) Great with Lamb chops and other red meat. Great with Cheese. 6) Nice complexity. Note: 90% Merlot 10% Carmenere.
External Reviews for Montes Merlot Colchagua Valley Alpha
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
