2009Montes Alpha Carmenere

Carm n re-South America-Chile

The wine has a very elegant and evident Carmenere tipicity showing lovely black pepper aromas with hints of red berries chocolate a bit of vanilla and black plums. In the mouth is distinctively smooth with rounded and soft tannins. Long finish. The oak is beautifully integrated and balanced. The grapes come from our Arcangel Estate located at the very West of Colchagua valley.

The 2009 Alpha Carmenere contains 10% Cabernet Sauvignon in its makeup. The fruit was sourced from a cool micro-climate near the Pacific Ocean which provides the long growing season Carmenere seems to require. It was aged for 12 months in a mix of new and used French oak before bottling without filtration. It offers up a brooding bouquet of wood smoke herbs spices incense violets and assorted black fruits. This is followed by a rich savory incipiently complex wine that will benefit from another 2-3 years of bottle age. Drink this tasty effort from 2013 to 2021.

Montess started vineyard operations in 1987. Previously, the Chilean wine market had been satisfied to produce a low-quality bulk wine for export and consumption. However, the vision of the Montes founding partners Aurelio Montes, Douglas Murray, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand was to produce world-class wines from Chile. They achieved this with their Alpha line of wines, and Montes was named Winemaker of the Year by Wine Spectator in 2002 and 2006.
