Montes Red Blend Colchagua Valley Cabernet Carménère Limited Selection Apalta Vineyard 2011
Not yet reviewed; 2010 vintage rated 89 points by Wine Advocate: The 2010 Limited Selection Cabernet Sauvignon (70%) - Carmenere (30%) spent 6 months in American oak. It offers a bit more complexity than the two preceding wines in its alluring nose of cedar, lavender, Asian spices, incense, blackberry, and blueberry. In the glass it exhibits a firm structure, plush fruit, excellent balance, and a fruit-filled finish. This outstanding value is likely to evolve for 1-2 years but there is no reason to defer gratification. It should continue to provide pleasure over the next 5-6 years.

Awesome blend of Cab Sauv and the mythical Carmenere from Chile. Maybe my best value wine ever. Super smooth and complex beyond my descriptive abilities but theres some chocolately/vanilla/butterscotch flavs happening here that made it perfect with the dark chocolate we had on the boat after a sail on the Gulf of Mexico. Cheers!
An absolute adventure of smooth and dark combinations. Something new! Very, very special, has to be learned a bit. Choose it´s place on the tounge with care. Butterscotch. Overripe cherries hiding in a smoky leather darkness. Burnt vanilla. Best value I have bought.
