This new vintage of our great Montes Alpha M is deep red in color. Elegance and potency are clearly perceived on the nose with a clear predominance of ripe red fruits such as cherries, plums, and raspberries along with black currant and licorice in perfect balance with the contribution of vanilla, caramel, and light toasted notes from its 18 months in new French oak barrels.

A beautifully concentrated wine, mouth filling with an intense character, soft tannins and very, very long lasting. The structure of this wine will keep it for over 20 years. 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.
