(2008 Vintage) Ripe and ready, with a rich, syrupy nose. Just right on the palate, where bold dark-fruit flavors are supported by lively tannins and just enough acid. Spice and coffee on the finish, with ample oak.
14% 90 points Parker let it decant or breathe 1 hour &&&&& "Classic Series" Colchagua Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 89/100 - Our Score 90/100 - Wine Advocate "The 2011 Montes Classic Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with 15% Merlot and offers a simple black currant, vanilla and violet bouquet that is joyful and well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannin, crisp raspberry and dark cherry fruit, zesty acidity and lovely focus on the finish. At this price, it would be hard to find a better Cabernet. Drink now-2016."
delicious for the price. would buy again. has a little barn yardy, soft front to the wine and a little acidity. worth every penny.
April 2013: blind tasted: medium body, young tannins, rough edges. much better on second day. needs food, not for sipping.
BUY Not dry, good fruit, good deal
