Montes Alpha Malbec is an intense red-colored, almost black-looking wine. To the nose it shows notes of red fruit in unison with spices and black pepper. This wine is aged in French oak barrels for 12 months developing superior complexity both in aroma and on the palate. This is a soft, elegant wine of silky tannins with a long, delightful finish.
"A balanced malbec with dark fruit and fine tannins. Medium body, with fine tannins and a savory finish. Drink now."
"The 2011 Montes Alpha Pinot Noir has a lovely, beautifully defined bouquet with lifted red cherries, fresh strawberry, minerals and rose petals. The palate is well balanced with a firm structure. It has a pleasing balance and good freshness, the finish demonstrating more elegance and precision than the Outer Limits Pinot Noir 2011. This would be my pick of recent releases."
