Winemaker's Notes:

70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Carménerè.

Deep ruby red in color with butterscotch, subtle spice, and integrated vanilla notes, this Cabernet-Carménère blends Chile's unique red varietal, Carménère, with a popular favorite to create a complex and elegant wine.

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.
