    Winemaker's Notes:

    Aged for 12 months in French oak. Intense ruby in color with red fruits evocations of blackcurrant, chocolate and cigar box, in balance with well integrated oak. Of great complexity in the mouth, in mid palate is full bodied and balanced 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.

    Decant at least 30 minutes, preferably one hour.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2007 Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon raises the bar considerably. A glass-coating opaque purple, it has an excellent bouquet of toasty oak, tobacco, espresso, and blackcurrant. With good richness, excellent depth, and a firm structure, it will evolve for several years and drink well through 2019. Aurelio Montes remains one of Chile's great innovators and quality leaders. His latest releases are first class from entry level to the top of the portfolio.

    I really have enjoyed this so far, but I think it needs to age. I bought a case and had maybe 3 bottle so far. I've had it with steaks and it doesn't support the beef yet- just a little too thin. Not chewy or thick enough. We have enjoyed it with freinds late at night on the deck in a heat wave, and they loved it. I think it's better with just cheese/crackers etc.

    This is one of my favorite wines. Served it at dinner with friends recently. After a few sips, they said We don't usually like Cabs, but this is really nice! The taste is silky and full bodied.

    This is a really good Chilean cab. Have enjoyed several bottles. If I could get the 2007 I would get more.

    I loved the chocolate tones! It is a bit too dry for me, but overall this is a very nice wine!
