Montes Alpha Carmenere - Red Wine
Producer Notes 2014
90% Carmenère, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Deep ruby red with striking violet nuances at the rim. Intense aromas of ripe red and black fruits on the nose along with jam and pastry. Toasted notes from the French oak deliver great character and complexity with a light touch of vanilla and coffee, which intermingle very well with aromas of violets and sweet spices. The palate is smooth, with silky tannins and tremendous volume. Sweet and dairy notes expand on the palate, leading to a very pleasing finish.
Highly recommended with red meats, stir-fried beefpork chops, spaghetti with Bolognese sauce, and lamb chops. Serve between 17ºC to 19ºC. May be enjoyed now or cellared for 10 years.
