Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 (Colchagua Valley)

Tasted 22/10/11 at with the Tews in Clapham. 14%, about £12 UK retail. I have tasted several recent vintages of this and the '07 seems to be the pinnacle. Deep purple colour and it has the classic New World Cab Sauv nose of green bell peppers. Beautiful cassis notes rise in the glass and the palate is a sophisticated melange of dark fruits, mocha, pimento and liquorice. A lovely wine, ready to drink. A world away from an Chilean '£4.99 glugger'! 17.5 / 20. From 2012
