Montes Classic Cabernet Sauvignon 2021
Of vivid ruby-red colour, the wine reveals mainly fresh red fruit aromas, with the typical characteristics of Cabernet Sauvignon, such as strawberry, cherry, red plum, cassis, and a distinct note of cigar box. The eight months’ contact with French oak provides an interesting feeling of complexity, that blends toasted aromas with vanilla and sweet spice, combining very well with the fruit. The palate is balanced and very smooth; medium-bodied, but with silky tannins and a very well-defined acidity. It is an easy-to-enjoy wine, with a pleasant overall sensation.
The story of Montes seems like a dream and, truthfully, that\'s how he began, becoming progressively reality. It was in 1987 when our two deluded partners, Aurelio Montes and Douglas Murray, with extensive experience in the world of wine, wanted to realize their dreams of producing wines of a quality far superior to the one that was being produced in Chile.
