Wine Details





Wine Description

(From 2005 Vintage) Medium red. Cherry and raspberry aromas are complicated by sexy oak spices, rose and licorice. Fresh and nervy, with vivid red fruit flavors, silky texture and slow-building sweetness. The long finish leaves a strong note of vanilla behind.

Winemaker's Notes

Lots of berry fruits with chocolate, tobacco and vanilla, Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon has richness, depth and structure. It shows great complexity on the mouth, showing a full bodied and balanced mid palate, with classical Cabernet notes and soft but firm tannins with a lasting persistence and a remarkable finish.

It is a sophisticated elegant wine. Beautiful ruby red color, Intense cassis, strawberry flavors, with combined hints of black cherries and chocolate. Oak is not predominant but well combined and still present in the background in order to keep the fruit as a principal character of this wine. Solid and ripe tannins but with 2 years of aging already soft and friendly. An outstanding wine for bottle aging (5-10 years).

    Verdadeiro clássico da América do Sul, o Montes Alpha foi o primeiro grande tinto chileno, inspirado nos melhores vinhos de Bordeaux. Foi eleito o "melhor Bordeaux chileno" pela revista Decanter, e equivale em qualidade a um "cru bourgeois" de preço três ou quatro vezes maior! Concentrado e refinado, com muita estrutura, camadas e mais camadas de fruta madura e um elegante final de boca. Um vinho excelente, de imbatível relação qualidade/preço.
