MONTES Carmenère 'Alpha' 2015

The 2015 'Alpha' Carmenère includes 10% Cabernet Sauvignon from Colchagua Valley and 55% of the wine was aged for 12 months in first-use French oak barrels. Showing an extremely deep core, this wine begins with intense aromas of red bell pepper, exotic spices, red cherry preserves and suggestions of milk chocolate. The weight and mouthfeel are gorgeous as plush layers of black cherry, red currant, milk chocolate, green bell pepper and baking spice flavors coat the mid-palate. This finishes long and supple. Overall, an outstanding effort by Montes. (Best 2017-2026) - September, 2017 (OB)
