Montes Alpha 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon

Deep and intense carmine red in color with violet notes at the rim. The complex nose offers outstanding aromas of ripe black fruits such as figs and blackberries complemented by notes of crème de cassis, while spices such as cayenne pepper appear over a backdrop of dark chocolate, which masterfully envelopes subtle aromas of leather and tobacco. The undeniably elegant Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon is silky on the palate with perfectly rounded tannins that trigger an explosion of the fruit on the mid-palate. The 2015 vintage seduces with its tremendous volume and structure as it eases into its remarkably long finish—a faithful reflection of the virtues that the wonderful terroir of the Colchagua Valley offers year after year. 90% Cab / 10% Merlot. 3.49 g/L RS. Oak Aging: 55% of the wine was aged in French oak barrels (1st, 2nd, and 3rd use) for 12 month. Aging Recommendations: Enjoy now or cellar up to 10 years. Decanting: Recommended for at least 30 minutes. Food Pairing: Highly recommended with red meats, stir-fried beef, spaghetti with Bolognese sauce, and lamb chops with Cabernet-mushroom sauce.
