Winemaker Notes

This Merlot has a deep, intense red color. On the nose it presents red berries aromas, especially of cherry and strawberries, accompanied by interesting floral notes which are perfectly blended with the coffee and tobacco flavors associated from its twelve months of oak ageing.

On the palate it's a full-bodied wine of soft texture, deliciously plummy fruit flavors and mellow tannins. A wine of great finesse with a long, smooth and pleasant finish

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

The 2009 Alpha Merlot contains 15% Carmenere in its blend and spent 12 months in French oak. It proffers an already complex aromatic array of cedar, tobacco, vanilla, violets, incense, blueberry, and black currant. Plush on the palate while maintaining a sense of elegance, this nicely proportioned, pleasure bent Merlot will drink well for another 6-8 years.

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.
