Winemaker Notes

Intense and very lively ruby red in color with violet nuances. Aromas of fresh red fruits such as strawberries and tart cherries predominate on the nose with a light touch of red plums. Floral notes underscore its fresh character with fragrances of wildflowers and violets. Sweet spices such as anise appear over a backdrop of light aromas of vanilla and jam. The sweet sensation is echoed on the palate with surprisingly smooth, round tannins that lend structure and tremendous volume. Very nicely balanced natural acidity makes this a very juicy, elegant Malbec with a remarkable finish that lingers long on the palate.

The vineyards that produce the grapes for our Alpha Malbec come from our Apalta and Marchigüe estates in the Colchagua Valley. Both properties have soils of granitic origin with different degrees of decomposition and varying amounts of clay, depth, and organic matter.

Blend: 95% Malbec, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

Wine Enthusiast
Although this wine smells a bit pointy up front, enough ripe blackberry and cassis on the nose offsets olive and leather notes. A jammy, plump palate is more widespread than compact, while flavors of oak, tobacco, spice and berry fruits are integrated and finish long and fairly complex. Drink through 2022.

Montes Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon Vines Winery Image

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.

Colchagua Valley Wine

Rapel Valley, Chile

View all products

Well-regarded for intense and exceptionally high quality red wines, the Colchagua Valley is situated in the southern part of Chile’s Rapel Valley, with many of the best vineyards lying in the foothills of the Coastal Range.

Heavy French investment and cutting-edge technology in both the vineyard and the winery has been a boon to the local viticultural industry, which already laid claim to ancient vines and a textbook Mediterranean climate.

The warm, dry growing season in the Colchagua Valley favors robust reds made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Malbec and Syrah—in fact, some of Chile’s very best are made here. A small amount of good white wine is produced from Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Celebrated for its bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec has enjoyed runaway success in Argentina since the late 20th century. The grape originated in Bordeaux, France, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. A French agronomist, who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. Somm Secret—If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet with its combination of dense fruit and soft tannins.
