Winemaker Notes

MONTES ALPHA"M" is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (80%), Merlot (10%) and Cabernet Franc (10%) which enhances the elegance of the first variety, and is in total harmony with the softness of the second and austerity of the third.

The wine is an intense multi-hued ruby red with an aroma redolent of berries. The red fruit with notes of black pepper and spices blends harmoniously when aged over one year in French oak barriques that contribute subtle vanilla tones.

On the palate, it is perfectly balanced, full-bodied and superbly voluptuous on the mid-palate with a rewarding, lingering after taste of mature grapes and acidity that reflects its superb structure.

Although young, MONTES ALPHA "M" can be enjoyed now or cellared for several years (it will continue to improve in the bottle for more than 10 years). We recommend serving this wine with lamb chops, roast lamb, lamb casserole, steak and kidney in all its forms, roast goose or roast turkey, also beef Bourguignonne, roast venison, rabbit, boar. If a vegetarian, it will go extremely well with vegetable lasagne.
