Montes Limited Selection Cabernet Sauvignon Carmenère Apalta Vineyard 2001

Apalta Valley, Santa Cruz, Valle del Colchagua, Valle del Rapel, Region del Valle Central, ChileThe '01 is a 70/30 cabernet/carmenère blend that opens with an intense smoky cassis and green bean nose streaked with minty herbal carmenère aromas. This is riper and richer than the previous edition with coffee, cassis and gobs of black-cherry fruit. It is soft and sippable with a surprising touch of finesse at the end. Drinkable now with grilled meats but will improve further in bottle for two to three yearsTasted: 16 September 2003Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 17.95 Specialty MB 15.17 Producer: Montes WinesDistributors: Trajectory Beverage Partners
