Winemaker Notes

Aromatic nose with outstanding aromas of ripe black fruits such as blackberries and figs. Aromas of crème de cassis meld with mild notes of leather and dark chocolate, which are very characteristic of Syrah from Colchagua. The palate is well balanced with rich acidity, incredibly smooth tannins, tremendous structure, and generous volume.

Pair with red meat, charcuterie and cheese.

Blend: 90% Syrah, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Viognier.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 94
James Suckling

A juicy and delicious red with sweet tobacco, berries and hints of cedar. Black olives, too. Pops out. Medium-to full-bodied, tight and polished with a beautiful center palate and a yummy finish. The texture and flavor is so attractive. Essence. Touch of co-fermented viogner. Enjoy now.

WS 92
Wine Spectator
A floral aroma introduces this red, with plenty of meaty and Asian spice notes to the decadent roasted plum and dark cherry flavors. Slate and hot stone accents come in on the muscular finish, with hints of baker's chocolate. Drink now through 2023. 22,000 cases made.
D 92
Decanter

Rich and showing considerable concentration of blackberry, currant and a touch of balsamic notes along with fresh herbs and smoky spice. Many will appreciate the modest nod to Côte-Rôtie as a dash of Viognier offers a welcome floral touch to this bold, full-bodied blend.

TA 91
Tim Atkin

Sourced from the slopes of the Apalta Valley and co-fermented, Côte Rôtie style, with 3% Viognier, this is a rich, dense, granite-sourced Syrah with notes of thyme and rosemary, toasty oak and layers of bramble and blackberry fruit. 2021-28. Alcohol: 14.5%

Montes Winery Video

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.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
