Vina Montes Alpha Merlot 2015
Plum and cherry fruit with well-integrated oak and notes of toast, toffee, fresh-ground coffee, tobacco, and vanilla.
The Merlot 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 Merlot 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 a certain creaminess and very pleasing volume. Long, pleasing finish. A perfect match with sausages and stews. Drink now to 2020+.
