Montes Alpha Carmenere 2018 750ml
Tasting Notes: Deep-ruby red with an eye-catching violet hue. On the nose it's complex and elegant. Pronounced, delicious aromas of ripe red and black fruit melt into inviting chocolate, mocha and brioche. The nose if well-balanced, with a little spice in the background. The French oak lends some toasted notes that complement the aromatic profile, while adding a slight sensation of sweetness. On the palate, it shows itself to be a wine of great Carmenere character and typicity, with rich acidity that is well balanced with the generous body. The tannins are velvety and give way to a long memorable finish.
