Ratings & Reviews

96 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:

"Beautifully concentrated, with a floral undertone to the rich yet racy wild berry, cassis and damson plum skin fruit character that’s tightly wound around fine tannins. The finish is long and compact, but needs time in the cellar to fully shine. Best from 2014 through 2020. 500 cases imported." —N.W (Dec 15, 2012)

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:

"This is concentrated and stout on the nose, with roasted black-fruit aromas bolstered by coconut, tobacco and cool-earth accents. The palate is thick, rich and layered with black fruit extract and tannin, bearing flavors of dark plum, baked blackberry, savory spice and BBQ sauce. It’s smooth, deep and long on the finish, with notes of coffee, vanilla and mocha. A monster wine with class. Drink now through 2018." — M.S. (9/1/2012)

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine (2007 vintage):

"This sleek, suave red displays alluring espresso, cocoa, warm tobacco and mulled black currant notes woven with a perfumy vanilla hint. The tobacco edge lingers nicely through the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2015. 2,400 cases imported." –JM (Oct 15, 2011)

91 Points & "Cellar Selection" - Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2007 vintage):
"Impressive as always, with dense, meaty aromas of baked black fruits, compost and dried cheese. The palate is thick to the max, with chocolate, coconut and baked plum and berry flavors. Ultrarich on the finish, with warmth and density. Once again "M" shows how deep and rewarding high-end Chilean reds can be. Drink now through 2015." —M.S. (12/31/2011)

94 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine (2006 vintage):
"Very suave, with a velvety texture and fine-grained tannins that carry deceptively concentrated notes of black currant, warm fig sauce, espresso, maduro tobacco and black tea. Long and well-defined through the finish, with an ample reserve of fruit and minerality. Drink now through 2015. 4,500 cases made." –JM (May 31, 2009)

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2006 vintage):
"Montes produces three -icon- wines. The most well-known (for the moment) is the Alpha M. The 2006 is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon with the balance made up of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. The wine was aged for 18 months in new French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple in color, it offers up a complex bouquet of pain grille, scorched earth, violets, blackcurrant, and blackberry. This leads to a full-bodied wine with excellent depth, savory black fruit flavors, several years of aging potential, and a lengthy finish. Its drinking window should extend from 2013 to 2026.

Aurelio Montes remains one of Chile's great innovators and quality leaders. His latest releases are first class from entry level to the top of the portfolio." - Jay Miller (Jun 2009)

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2006 vintage):
"Opens with a sublime bouquet of tobacco, perfume and baked cherry that conveys a sense of elegance. The palate is saturated and full, with integrated tannins and flavors of molasses, licorice and prime black fruits. This is probably a denser, slightly more ripe version of “M” than in past years, evidenced by the licorice, sweetness and coffee on the chewy finish. Drink now and over the next couple of years." - M.S. (7/1/2009)
