This Cabernet has been a huge success at the Bottle Shop for over a decade. Made of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot, this was aged for 6 months in French oak, and has good body with cassis, black cherry, mint and spice complexities. Made from grapes grown in Chile's Colchagua Valley, which has become famous for good Cabernet's, this is one of the greatest value in Cabernet in the market. Winemaker/Owner Aurelio Montes was named "Winemaker of the Year" by Wine Spectator in the years 2002 and 2006. Montes and his partners run a great, quality-driven operation in both Chile and in Argentina at Kaiken.

Moderately rich- and ripe-tasting, with concentrated dried raspberry flavors that show hints of sumac, followed by accents of dried tarragon on the finish. Drink now. 170,000 cases made, 17,400 cases imported.

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Montes Classic Series is blended with 15% Merlot from the Colchagua Valley, and 45% spent eight months in used French barrels. Very typical of the varietal in this price range in Chile, it is a purplish-garnet in color with a nose of red jam, cassis, and balsamic notes. Simple, indulgent and juicy on the palate; the oak returns during the lingering finish.
