Wine tasting notes

Deep red with a violet hue, this Classic Series Malbec presents potent aromas of ripe fruit including black and red berries with notes of prunes and crème de cassis. As a result of its 10 months in French oak, it presents good toast intensity with aromas of chocolate, jam, and vanilla, all very well intertwined with the fruit. Smooth and medium bodied on the palate, with good persistence and outstanding notes of vanilla and caramel (dulce de leche).

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2011)88 pts

eRobertParker.com # 204. Dec 2012. Reviewer : Neal Martin - The 2011 Montes Classic Malbec comes from nearly 100-year old vines in the Colchagua valley and is aged in French oak for six months. It has ripe dark cherry and creme de cassis on the nose while the palate offers ripe, chewy, dark cherry and bilberry fruit encased in fine tannins and a pure vanilla-y finish that is satisfying. Drink now-2016.

Vinification Notes
