Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby red color with layers of caramel, cinnamon, and hints of mint, this Montes Classic Series Cabernet Sauvignon has a prevalence of fruit over oak. Fruity sophistication expressing the terroir of the Colchagua valley, this wine has solid and friendly, ripe tannins. An outstanding wine for bottle aging, this Cabernet Sauvignon has oak that is not predominant, but well balanced in order to retain the fruit character of the bottle.

About Montes:

With the release of the first Montes Alpha wine back in 1988, Montes became one of the first premium wineries of Chile. Their premise, a clear belief that Chile had an untapped potential as a producer of quality wines, made them a benchmark for other wineries to follow. Its original four partners' total involvement and the continuous help of the angels that decorate their labels was key to their success. Two decades later, Montes is the fifth most important winery of Chile where Aurelio Montes continues leading the winemaking area with the same passion as the first day. Hard work and total focus on quality has led Montes to be one of the most successful and respected quality-driven wineries in Chile as they continue pioneering and breaking new grounds in wine.
