Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

I've been pretty busy lately and so I've also been backed up a lot with the wine reviews. Today I plan to go through a few wines that I've had lately. The Montes Alpha Cab was a good value wine from Chile with a nose of roasted tomatoes, burnt hay and cherry. The palate was a blend of earth, cassis and chocolate. This wine was a bit rough, but it had a really nice flavour profile and a pretty darn good finish given the price point. Its moderate tannins gave it a nice structure but they do not overwhelm. If I have any critique it is that the wine is a bit over-extracted. Still, a good value.

Very Good
$27 at BCLDB
