Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Now a legend, the Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon 1987 was Montes' first vintage; the pioneer that showed the way to all others in Chile. It remains #1 in the Chilean premium wine niche. Highly recommended with red meats, Mongolian beef, spaghetti with Bolognese sauce, or lamb chops with cabernet and mushroom sauce
Aurelio Montes has pioneered in premium and ultra-premium wines, in discovering new wine regions like the superb Apalta Valley and Marchigue (both in Colchagua), in establishing low-yield, steep mountain vineyards and in doing so has gained wide, international recognition. Wine Spectator said it briefly: "Montes offers prehaps the broadest range of quality wine in Chile today." Nourished with T.L.C. (tender loving care), all their vines and wines are the result of personal dedication, a great team, and a little help from their angels.
