Vina Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Blackcurrant and candied fruit with well-integrated oak and notes of toast, toffee, fresh-ground coffee, tobacco, and vanilla.
The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes for this excellent wine are sourced from Santa Cruz (Colchagua), from the now famous “La Finca de Apalta” Estate, in the Apalta Valley, reputed to be the best for red wines in Chile.
A 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot blend that is deep ruby-red in color and very fruity, ripe, and intense on the nose with a predominance of red fruit notes such as strawberries and ripe cherries. Black currants and candied fruit also appear on the palate, where the very well-integrated oak contributes notes of toast, toffee, fresh-ground coffee, tobacco, and vanilla. The palate is well balanced with finely tuned rounded tannins that lend the wine a certain creaminess and very pleasing volume. The aromatic sensation increases with greater emphasis on the lactic aromas and fruitiness. Long, pleasing finish. A perfect match with any roasted red meat. Drink now to 2018+.
