There’s lots of criticism about Montes but @ 2day’s Chilean Wine Tour WAW I found these really cultured & balanced.

A husky Cabernet with great aromatic typicity & broad-shouldered tannins. The oak is subtly integrated & there's that lovely, high-toned eucalyptus note that sings of Chile.

Had in Santiago at a steakhouse. Good complement to steak. Great deal for the money ($30 in restaurant there)

A solid Chilean bet;-) this wine always deliver a solid quality, deep red color, deep red, full of black fruits, cherries, black current, plums, coffee and a touch of smoked oak, medium-full body with dry tannins and lots of fruits, nice avidly and a medium dry finish, approachable today, better in a year. My score 86+, drink to 2020

Good wine. Relative lack of acid has an unbalancing effect on the wine. It makes the alcohol stand out somewhat. Still enjoyable though:)

Not defective, just poor quality.

Good Chilean Cabernet for the price. Intense with flavors, red currant, raspberries,cigar box with hints of black pepper in the finish

Blind tasting. Surprisingly good. Game and meats on the nose. Fresh peppers also. Jammy on the fore pallet and then smooth and velvety on the finish. It wouldn’t be my first choice but that’s why blind tasting evolve my pallet.
