2006 Montes Alpha Cabernet
The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes for this excellent wine are sourced from Santa Cruz (Colchagua), from the now famous “La Finca de Apalta” Estate, in the Apalta Valley, reputed to be the best for red wines in Chile. The wine is a deep ruby red colour, and the expression of Cabernet Sauvignon is evident providing structure and elegance. There are lots of berries, fruits and hints of tobacco and vanilla. Promising abundant soft rounded tannins are evident. The structure and balance of this full bodied wine makes it very pleasant and enjoyable. A very sophisticated wine with a delightfully long finish.
