Very suave, with a velvety texture and fine-grained tannins that carry deceptively concentrated notes of black currant, warm fig sauce, espresso, maduro tobacco and black tea. Long and well-defined through the finish, with an ample reserve of fruit and minerality. Drink now through 2015.

Montes produces three -icon- wines. The most well-known (for the moment) is the Alpha M. The 2006 is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon with the balance made up of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. The wine was aged for 18 months in new French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple in color, it offers up a complex bouquet of pain grille, scorched earth, violets, blackcurrant, and blackberry. This leads to a full-bodied wine with excellent depth, savory black fruit flavors, several years of aging potential, and a lengthy finish. Its drinking window should extend from 2013 to 2026.

About Montes Alpha:

Montes had its mindset to create better Chilean wines, an obsession. Montes then, lead the way venturing into the Apalta Valley and mountain slope plantations. Montes constantly sought quality, and became again a pioneer in Syrah plantations in Colchagua. Results surged faster than expected: the first ultra-premium (super-Chilean or icon) wine, the Montes Alpha M 1996 (a classic Bordeaux) was followed by another which has become a cult-wine, the Montes Folly 2000 (minimum production of 100% Syrah), and finally the first Chilean Carménère (over 75%) launched in May, 2005 and Purple Angel (Carménère 92%). Each and everyone became an immediate success for the specialized press and for our loyal consumers. Montes` blessing has been the achievement of everything they set out to do.

In 2005, they became the fifth Chilean bottled wine exporter; they achieved this on their own without seeking joint ventures or foreign consultancies of any kind, as has been the case of other wineries in the highest category. We are proud to state that Montes has been extremely successful, this has been the result of a group made up by Chileans, 100%, and the result of our own hard work.

Under the enlightened leadership of Aurelio Montes, the Montes winery remains one of the standard-bearers for Chilean wines. The Carmenere-based Purple Angel is one of the two or three best of its type; the Folly is arguably Chile’s finest Syrah, and the Montes Alpha M one of the Cabernet-based icons.
