Montes 2005 Alpha M Red (Apalta)

Cellar Selection

Who said Chile doesn't make cellar-worthy reds? This vintage of Montes Alpha M is well-oaked, strapped and structured. Early attackers will find coconut, mocha and chocolate running the show, but if you hold the wine for another two to five years, it will likely settle, balance out and become an excellent model for what is high-end Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon (with 20% other Bordeaux grapes).
