Wine tasting notes

Ruby-red in colour, with violet at the rim. The nose is generous; red and black fruit aromas are perfectly balanced with smooth notes of spice. Aromas are strawberry, cassis, nutmeg and cinnamon, with vanilla, and mocha from the wine’s time in French oak, which also lends a sensation of sweetness on the midpalate. In the mouth it’s balanced, with smooth tannins and rich, fresh acidity that makes the wine juicy. The finish has medium fruit in line with the aromas perceived on the nose.

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2011)90 pts

eRobertParker.com #204 Dec 2012 - Neal Martin - The 2011 Montes Classic Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with 15% Merlot and offers a simple black currant, vanilla and violet bouquet that is joyful and well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannin, crisp raspberry and dark cherry fruit, zesty acidity and lovely focus on the finish. At this price, it would be hard to find a better Cabernet. Drink now-2016.

Wine Spectator (2013)85 pts

April 2015 - Red plum and dusty berry flavors are matched to a crisp, granular minerality. The crunchy finish has notes of green herb.
