MONTES Syrah 'Alpha' 2012

The 2012 Alpha Syrah is made in a modern style with an impressive dark, inky color followed by aromas of blackberries and black plums along with loam, spices and a black olive character. On the palate this is full-bodied and well structured with an expansive finish. Already showing well, however I expect it to take on some more complexities with some additional bottle age. Excellent Value. 90% Syrah 7%, Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Viognier. (Best 2016-2021) - January, 2016 (JD)
