    Montes Alpha Series Carmenere 2011
    Style: Earth & Spicy
    Having lived in Chile off and on for years, it's a delight to be able to get Montes' Alpha Series--be it their Malbec, Cab, Syrah or Carmenere--so easily back here in the States. Definitely the best overall bottle of any Chilean red varietal in the $20 range. Their Malbec even stands out against ones on the other side of the Andes. Each vintage of Montes' Carmenere is consistent with the vitality of their vineyards, Deep ruby red, rustic but so smooth, just the right amount of typical Carmenere spice on the palette, flushed by juicy raspberries and chocolate, yummy but not too sweet to take away from the ernest earthen flavor that grounds the wine.
