Montes Limited Selection Cabernet Sauvignon Carmenère Apalta Vineyard 2000

Apalta Valley, Santa Cruz, Valle del Colchagua, Valle del Rapel, Region del Valle Central, ChileThe 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon/Carménère is a 70 /30 blend that opens with smoky, gamy, fried green beans aromas mixed with cassis. Round smoky, coffee, cassis, black-cherry flavours make this a hit in the mouth. Big flavours and firm tannins suggest it needs food but this will be even better as it ages over the next three to five years.Tasted: 01 March 2003Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 19.95 Specialty Producer: Montes WinesDistributors: Trajectory Beverage Partners
