The Alpha Merlot adds depth and concentration to the mix in a straightforward style but not much complexity. It will last for 4-5 years but can be enjoyed now.

– Jay Miller (Robert Parker, Wine Advocate)

Handsome Ruby Red color, high intensity. Outstanding and concentrated fruit, with a noseful of black cherry, hints of black pepper, notes of tobacco and sweet chocolate. Aurelio decided to include a 15% of Carmenere in the blend as it adds of spiciness to the wine. A full-bodied and well balanced wine. Round and velvety in mid-palate, with soft and ripe tannins. Well integrated oak with added touch of vanilla, followed by a long and smooth finish. Very, very elegant.

– Aurelio Montes, winemaker at Montes Alpha
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.
