Product Description

The 2011 Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant, complex, and intense wine with aromas of violets, blackberry, chocolate, black pepper and cigar box while oak aging lends vanilla, butterscotch and coffee notes.  A wine in perfect balance showing real finesse and class, firm and round tannins, great structure, medium body, and a long and persistent finish.  Pair with red meats, Mongolian beef, pork ribs, spaghetti with Bolognese sauce, pan-roasted veal chops with cabernet sauce, and dark chocolate.

Varietal Composition: 90 Cabernet Sauvignon, 10 Merlot
Appellation: Colchagua Valley, Chile
Aging: 12 months in new and used French oak barrels

88 Points - Wine Spectator ("A spicy red, with smoked paprika notes to the dried plum, green herb and wild cherry flavors. The peppery finish features powerful tannins. Drink now through 2017. ")

90 Points - Wine & Spirits ("The 2011 vintage will be remembered as one of the coolest in Chile in a long time. It gave wines like this, a fine and elegant cabernet that leads with toasted oak and builds into a rich complexity of spices and red fruit flavors. Give it at least five years to fully mature.")
