Considered one of the deans of the Chilean wine industry, Aurelio Montes founded his eponymous winery back in the 1980's, well before the South American wine boom. A pioneer in both quality and pricing, Montes was one of the first to produce an "ultra-premium" red from a remote part of Chile's Colchagua Valley called Apalta. Together with Casa Lapostolle, who won Wine Spectator's Wine of the Year in 2008 for Clos Apalta, Montes decided this was the perfect spot to create world-class reds.

Tasting notes
It is a sophisticated elegant wine. Beautiful ruby red color, Intense cassis, strawberry flavors, with combined hints of black cherries and chocolate. Oak is not predominant but well combined and still present in the background in order to keep the fruit as a principal character of this wine. Solid and ripe tannins but with 2 years of aging already soft and friendly. An outstanding wine for bottle aging (5-10 years).

Rating
"A cabernet with a beautiful density and finesse with black currant, blackberry and hints of toasted oak. Full body, round and silky tannins, and a clean finish. Pretty acidity. Dry farmed." James Suckling, 92 Points

Wine maker notes
A winery like no other, Montes is ranked among the world's best with more than one hundred 90+ scores since 2005. With wines ranging from entry level to ultra-luxury, Montes brings Chile's most unique vineyard sites to life, capturing their expression through disciplined winemaking, modern technology and meticulous attention to detail.

Technical notes
Alcohol: 14.5%
