"A juicy and delicious red with sweet tobacco, berries and hints of cedar. Black olives, too. Pops out. Medium-to full-bodied, tight and polished with a beautiful center palate and a yummy finish. The texture and flavor is so attractive. Essence. Touch of co-fermented viogner. Enjoy now."

"A floral aroma introduces this red, with plenty of meaty and Asian spice notes to the decadent roasted plum and dark cherry flavors. Slate and hot stone accents come in on the muscular finish, with hints of baker's chocolate. Drink now through 2023. 22,000 cases made, 1,500 cases imported. — KM"
"Montes Alpha, the pioneer wine that showed the way to all other Chilean premium wines. It remains #1 in the Chilean premium wine niche, having proven early on our credibility as a world-class premium wine producer. All our Alpha wines have received 'Top Scoring' and 'Best Value' from the influential Wine Spectator magazine: quite an achievement for Chilean wines at this price level.
Aromatic nose with outstanding aromas of ripe black fruits such as blackberries and figs. Aromas of crème de cassis meld with mild notes of leather and dark chocolate, which are very characteristic of Syrah from Colchagua. The palate is well balanced with rich acidity, incredibly smooth tannins, tremendous structure, and generous volume." - Winery
