About Our Ratings

Pin It

Montes 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, Classic Series, Colchagua Vly.
Produced in their gravity-flow winery, this Cabernet shows complexity and style. Montes owns high-altitude vineyards in Chile's Colchagua Valley, that benefit from the cool temperatures and the brilliant sunlight. 15% Merlot is blended in and the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 6 months. The Wine Advocate scored this super-value Cab 90 points saying "The 2011 Montes Classic Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with 15% Merlot and offers a simple black currant, vanilla and violet bouquet that is joyful and well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannin, crisp raspberry and dark cherry fruit, zesty acidity and lovely focus on the finish. At this price, it would be hard to find a better Cabernet. Drink now-2016."

    Comments about Montes 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, Classic Series, Colchagua Vly.:

    If you are searching for a nice everyday Cab, then this is right up your alley. Nothing too fancy, but the fruit is ripe and the wine is pure. It has a medium body with soft tannins and hints of mint that show up on the back palate through the finish. Tough to beat at this price.

        Comments about Montes 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, Classic Series, Colchagua Vly.:

        I just purchased six bottles of this particular wine from Wine Express and opened the first bottle last night. It is beyond my understanding how this wine could have received 90 points from Parker, or anyone for that matter, given the wine tastes like it's suffered from oxidation. The cork was fine so no oxygen has gotten to it. So I opened a second bottle. Same thing. What a waste. Maybe it wasn't stored properly. Whatever the problem, this is a very undrinkable wine and I suggest you avoid it.

        • Q:

          is this wine towards the sweet rather than the caustic?

            It is neither sweet nor caustic. It is dry with nice acidity and flavorful fruit component.
