SKU400 MONTES Cabernet Sauvignon
This wine is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot, both sourced from the well known Colchagua valley. The wine has been aged for six months in new and used American oak. Deep ruby red colour, very appealing. The nose is packed with layers of caramel, cinnamon, candy and hints of mint, with a prevalence of fruit over oak. A spicy, full-flavored wine, with good body, fruit and firm friendly tannins. Full body in mid palate and pleasant finish. Well recommended for pairing it with a piece of soft red meats, some pastas or as wine by the glass. D.O. Colchagua Valley.
