This Cabernet-led blend is Montes' new icon wine from Marchigue in the Colchagua Valley. It is ripe, warm, leathery and earthy, with aromas of aged cheese, tobacco, raisin and cedar. The mouth is hefty and bold, with a mix of coffee and herbal flavors as well as cassis and blackberry. The finish is heavy and a bit raisiny, with depth and density. Drink now through 2015.
