Montes Alpha M 2010
This is Montes winery's most famous and iconic wine. A harmonious blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, Alpha M is made from Montes' best vineyard site with a unique microclimate of warm days and cool, windy nights. The wine was aged for 18 months in all new French oak barrels. Bottled unfiltered.
Wine SpectatorBeautifully concentrated, with a floral undertone to the rich yet racy wild berry, cassis and damson plum skin fruit character that's tightly wound around fine tannins. The finish is long and compact, but this needs time in the cellar to fully shine. Best from 2014 through 2020. From Chile.
