LCBO Sale of the Week: September 12
Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon (Colchagua Valley, Chile)
Sale $16.95, Regular $
Discount (until September 16th): $3.00
Vintages #322586 | 750 mL bottle
Tastes like: A refined cedary French oak with ripe berry flavours, lingering on the finish. It is deep, tannic and chewy it would be best to let it breathe before drinking.
Pairs with: Fortunately, we still have grilling weather, highly recommend this with red meat. Want to try something sweet instead? Dark chocolate will do.
Good for: This is a restrained powerhouse of a wine that needs a good breath of oxygen to reach full expression. Decanting or swirling for at least five minutes in your glass is recommended. For a fairly serious dinner — this wine should impress and give them something to talk about!
Drink: Now to 2022
Why we're drinking this
Winemaker Aurelio Montes has won Winemaker of the Year twice and we can see why with this juice, making a rich and heavy selection a great value. A ripe and stunning ruby color with intense fruit and nutmeg flavours! It is sophisticated, and will undoubtedly thrill.
Full-bodied. It is well balanced, a ruby red colour, with traces of dill, smoke and deep fruit. The traditional cassis fruit, amid chocolate and herbal notes.
