Wine Review: 2012 Montes Twins Colchagua Valley Chile Red Blend

This is Montes first foray into fun label marketing and yes, the label is fun and represents the young wine well. With or without the label this wine stands on its own two grapes (Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon) and stands pretty well. Aromas of dark fruit and spice start the train rolling and the flavors, which resemble the bouquet, just keep chugging along as the flavor train brings the payload home. Balanced, soft structured berry plum goodness and a lingering finish make this wine an attractive package. Versatile culinary possibilities are another attractive component. The Montes winery has produced a great blend and a great value with this wine something they have been doing consistently for quite some time.

Rating: Very Good (87) | $18 | 14.0% ABV
