Montes Limited Selection Cabernet Sauvignon/Carmenere 2019 750ml
Tasting Notes: An intense carmine-red colour, this newest vintage shows a generous nose with broad notes of ripe red and black fruit such as strawberry, cherry, plum, dried fig, and blackcurrant. The ageing in French oak barrels lends the wine notes of sweet spice, such as nutmeg, vanilla, chestnut, and a hint of smoke. The palate is balanced, medium-bodied, with great smoothness and vibrancy, and a long finish.
