Montes Alpha Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
One of the top Chilean Cabernets, aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. Intense ruby in color with red fruits evocations of blackcurrant, chocolate and cigar box, in balance with well-integrated oak (French Alliers fine grained 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. Our first (1987) version was recently selected among the best ten year old red wines (18th) in the world and our 1990 version was ranked 10th in the world, also by WINE magazine (UK).
