Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A dark, ripe red, offering a rich core of plum sauce, cassis and kirsch notes offset by fine tannins and a focused line of savory tobacco, olive paste and spice box hints that lead to a long, smoky finish. Drink now through 2018. 1,200 cases imported." – NW (Dec 15, 2012)

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2009 Montes Alpha M is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. It offers a raucous, fruit-driven nose of blackberry, bilberry, licorice and vanilla that has a lot of glycerin lying underneath. The palate is full-bodied with dark chocolate covered cherries; Asian spice, white pepper and a muscular finish with layers of concentrated dark berries. It is a wine of dimension and power, but it is well crafted and what could have been an overbearing wine is highly enjoyable and worth cellaring. Drink 2015-2025." - Neal Martin (26th Dec 2012)

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This is concentrated and stout on the nose, with roasted black-fruit aromas bolstered by coconut, tobacco and cool-earth accents. The palate is thick, rich and layered with black fruit extract and tannin, bearing flavors of dark plum, baked blackberry, savory spice and BBQ sauce. It’s smooth, deep and long on the finish, with notes of coffee, vanilla and mocha. A monster wine with class. Drink now through 2018." — M.S. (9/1/2012)
