"Montes Alpha Malbec is a blend of 45% of Malbec from the Marchigue Estate and 45% of Malbec from the Apalta Estate. The remaining is a 10% Cabernet Sauvignon from Apalta. The Apalta vineyards provide elegant, ripe fruit with soft, firm and fine tannins, while Marchigue brings cooler weather notes like violets and red fruits. In the mouth, tannins have a lush structure, robustness and freshness. The Cabernet Sauvignon helps us to bring additional structure and complexity to the natural sweetness and softness of the Malbec variety. Blend: 90% Malbec, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon"

Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
"The 2010 Montes Alpha Malbec is the debut offering in the Alpha range and the fruit is sourced from both the original vineyards in Colchagua and their coastal vineyards. The nose is clean and pure with scents of raspberry, cedar, tobacco and claylike aromas. It is understated and attractive. The palate is mediumbodied with fine grainy tannins, crisp acidity and fine delineation. There is something Old World about this Malbec, but it has that elusive quality of personality and there is great vibrancy and tension on the finish. This forms a commendable debut."
