Sip of the Day

Day #[wpdts-day-of-year start=”post-created”] of the year.

Montes Classic Cabernet Sauvignon

On this day ten years ago, Instagram was founded. Let that sink in for a minute and consider how much this innocent-seeming app directly correlates with your screen time. Then celebrate (or commiserate) with an IG shot of your wine of the day. Hey, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em! I’ll be opening this bottle of fruit and spice and everything nice: Montes Classic Cabernet Sauvignon. And I can’t resist a shameless hashtag plug: don’t forget to tag #Wine365!


Colchagua Valley, Chile


85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot

Bottle of red wine, Chile, Colchagua Valley, Montes, Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting Notes

Bright and lively violet-red color with aromas of ripe strawberries, plums, and figs. Notes of tobacco, leather, and dark chocolate also intermingle with sweet spices such as nutmeg and black pepper. On the palate, the wine features well-balanced acidity, medium body, and incredibly smooth tannins followed by a moderately persistent finish.
