Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Smoky, rubbery aromas of berry fruits and black currant lead to a fleshy, grabby, pulpy palate. Herbal berry and saucy plum flavors finish with herbal notes. Overall, this is plump, dark and honest for Chilean Cabernet, especially in a difficult year like 2016.
Fresh minerality is backed by crisp acidity in this firm red. Dried cherry and currant flavors linger on the finish, with some herbal notes. Drink now through 2021. 120,000 cases made, 5,000 cases imported.
