    Winemaker's Notes:

    Lots of berry fruits with chocolate, tobacco and vanilla, Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon has richness, depth and structure.

    It shows great complexity on the mouth, showing a full bodied and balanced mid palate, with classical Cabernet notes and soft but firm tannins with a lasting persistence and a remarkable finish.

    Although a superb wine as it is, it may also be considered as a great wine for cellaring.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon contains 10% Merlot and was sourced entirely from the estate’s Apalta vineyards. It was aged for 12 months in French oak. It reveals a reticent nose which with coaxing displays notions of toast, spice box, violets, black currant, and blackberry. In the glass it has ample fruit, tasty flavors, and decent balance but lacks the breadth and volume for an outstanding rate. Even so, there is much to like in this wine which should be consumed over the next 4-5 years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Earthy, warm and generously oaked, with berry aromas that bring leather and smoke. The palate is healthy and tight, with spiky tannins and herbal black fruit flavors. Grippy on the finish, with olive and spice. Very much a good-quality, typically styled Chilean Cabernet.
