Very nice carmenere, balanced with a moderate amount of tannin on the finish. Black berry fruits are prominent. Enjoy with “Bringing Up Baby.” Cary Grant and Catherine Hepburn would drink this during weekday dinner. — 8 days ago
This nose cones on slowly, smokily..
Dark fruits here - lots of seeded - pip action. Roasted violets, crushed pomegranate, complete with rind and pith. High acid fruits slap those first fruit thoughts right out of the glass. Bing cherry and jolly rancher fruits soar with the acidity in how this ends.
Last wine smuggled back from Chile.

This wine is made by Silva family. They came to Chile from St-Emilion region in France in the end of 19th century. And they took the sprouts of their
grapesvine with them. Now the grapesvine is more then 100 years old and five members of the Silva family still working hard every day to ensure they make a typical local wine.
The color is intense ruby, the nose is light spicy, with touches of black forrest fruits. Round and strong in the mouth, aftertaste is long end elegant. — 12 hours ago

A wine we brought back from a wine bistro called Boconariz in Santiago a couple of years ago, this is absolutely terrific. Beautiful, intense red-purple color, the tannins are sweet and rich with a great hint of camphor on the nose. Well-integrated tannins with a rich mouthfeel, that camphor component is a bit more amplified on the palate, but not overwhelming by any means. Lingering, balanced finish. Hard to gauge how much longer this will continue to develop, but my guess is that’s it’s peaking right now. Terrific example of a carmenere! — 20 days ago
With the release of the first Montes Alpha wine back in 1988, Montes became one of the first premium wineries of Chile. 100% Syrah, aged for 18 months in oak, rich Ruby with aromas of ripe black fruits, sweet spice and complex spice. On the palate juicy blackberry flavors with notes of cacao and toasty spices. Well balanced with acidity, full ripe rustic tannins, lingering ending with smoky spice. A big Syrah! Very nice! — 7 days ago
