Day #332 of the year.

Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

One positive in 2020, Black Friday will be way more civilized – no braving the inclement weather, no giant overnight cues on lawn chairs or sleeping bags, no wrestling matches with store employees or fellow merry holiday shoppers! All you need to do this year is open your computer in the privacy of your own home, kick back and browse! I personally would not miss the opportunity to turn this internet Christmas shopping into a wine and food event with a nice bottle of Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile and yummy Thanksgiving leftovers to fortify me through the process – Cheers!

ORIGIN

Colchagua Valley, Chile

Grapes

90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot

Montes Alpha Cab Sauv

Tasting Notes

The nose is elegant and complex with aromas of very well-blended ripe red and black fruit. Aromas of crème de cassis, tobacco, and black pepper stand out against a backdrop of toast and pastry notes. The palate is smooth, but well-structured with sweet tannins leading to a lasting and elegant finish.
