We finally tried the last of our Chilean wines over the weekend. This was the 03 Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon with a nose of spice, blackcurrants and a hint of dusty oak.
The palate dislayed vigorous tannins, big spice, plums and blackcurrants with prominent French oak. It was a mouthfilling wine with excellent balance. Slightly hollow in the mid palate but a good finish.
This one is worth a further try. It went very well with roast lamb!
