Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon (750ml)
In 1987, Aurelio Montes and Douglas Murray, both highly experienced wine professionals, wanted to realize their dream of producing Chilean wines a quantum-leap higher in quality than the standards of the time. In 1988, they joined up with the other two founders, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, who brought their own complementary skills and expertise to the venture. Thus Montes was born.
Deep ruby red colour, the expression of Cabernet Sauvignon is evident providing structure and elegance. Lots of berries fruits and hints of tobacco and vanilla. Promising abundant soft rounded tannins. The structure and balance of this full bodied wine makes it very pleasant and enjoyable. A very sophisticated wine with a delightfully long finish.
90% Cabernet Sauvignon with 10% Merlot. Half of the wine was aged in French oak barrels, 1st, 2nd, 3rd use for 12 months.
