We have been Montes fans for many years... we first discovered these wines from Chile by carrying their 'everyday' values under the Classic series; then we had the amazing opportunity to go to Chile and spend time at the winery to learn more. We came home from the trip struck by the super high quality and value of their 'Alpha' series wines, made in smaller quantities, from older, lower yielding vines.

The Carmenère is deep purplish-red in color. The intense nose offers pleasing notes of ripe blackberries, figs, and dried plums. Spicy notes of nutmeg and black pepper complement a backdrop of tobacco, leather, and a subtle hint balsamic and dark chocolate aromas. The palate is well balanced, lush, and structured, with soft tannins that lead to a long and very elegant finish. Serve with red meats, stir-fried beef and vegetables, pork chops, spaghetti with Bolognese sauce, lamb chops, and mushroom ravioli.

Blackberries and dark cherries with hints of flowers, such as violets and lavender. Medium body, firm and fine, chewy tannins and a fruity yet savory finish. Some spice and cedar undertones. Touch of cabernet in here. Drink now.
