Montes Alpha first release of wine in 1988 made Montes one of the premium wineries of Chile. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (80%), Merlot (5%), Cabernet Franc (10%) and Petit Verdot (5%), very dark inky red with aromas of dark fruits, still closed and tight. On the palate blackberry and cherry with complex spice, pepper and cacao. Well balanced with good mouthfeel, soft but tight tannins on lingering finish but needs more time.

V11. Fantastic. Muted olive and cedar nose. Bold, fresh black berries fruits with plum hints. Smooth, dry, tight, chewy chocolate and black pepper finish. Balanced and very good!

Significantly better on day two. Young wine needs to breathe.
