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.
