MONTES ALPHA M 2013
This new vintage of the great Montes Alpha M is very deep, intense, ruby-red in color. The nose is perfumed and complex with outstanding aromas of ripe red and black fruits over subtle notes of crème de cassis, tobacco, and leather. Spice aromas of red and black pepper mingle with cinnamon and dark chocolate notes. The palate is smooth but structured, with silky tannins that lend breadth and exceptional voluptuousness. Juicy and generous with delicious sensations very much in accordance with the nose with aromas of dried figs that explode on the mid-palate and ending on a long, elegant, and very pleasing finish..
Montes Alpha M is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (80%), Cabernet Franc (10%), Merlot (5%), and Petit Verdot (5%), which links all the other grapes. The Cabernet Franc enhances the elegance of the first variety, and is in total harmony with the softness of the second and austerity of the third. A rewarding high-end Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon.
The 2013 Alpha M is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot from vines planted on granite slopes in Apalta in Colchagua in the early 1990s. It fermented after a one-week cold soak and matured in new French oak barrels for 18 months. It has very good freshness and elegance, with good natural acidity and nicely integrated oak in the shape of spices and just a smoky twist. There is bright fruit here, fine-grained tannins and a refreshing sensation. 48,000 bottles produced..
