Montes Limited Selection Cabernet Sauvignon Carmenère Apalta Vineyard 2003

Apalta Valley, Santa Cruz, Valle del Colchagua, Valle del Rapel, Region del Valle Central, ChileBig minty, clove, tobacco, peppery, black olive, cool cassis aromas with smoky oak ― aromas not hard to imagine when you mix cabernet and carmenère . Rich, round, dry and slightly tannic. Black olive, minty, spicy, earthy, smoky vanilla flavours with a savoury, peppery coffee finish. Young, dry and bold style that will need a year or so to soften the tannins and oak.Tasted: 07 May 2005Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 20.58 Specialty MB 15.61 AB 16.00 Producer: Montes WinesDistributors: Trajectory Beverage Partners
