Review: *** $ Montes Twins Red Wine Malbec Cabernet Sauvignon, Colchagua Valley, Chile, 2011 = BEST VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Montes Twins Red Wine.

By way of background, opening thoughts: Certainly Chile is well-known for its malbec.  Today we will sample a combination cabernet sauvignon/malbec from the Colchagua Valley.

Original tasting and review : This is Montes Twins Red Wine Malbec Cabernet Sauvignon, Colchagua Valley, Chile, 2011, finished at 14% alcohol.


In the glass: Deep magenta, opaque from a half inch in from the edge.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows a bold cedar/balsam attitude.  From the aroma, seems like this will be deep, fruity and fragrant.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact somewhat brighter than anticipated, showing the fully fragrant poignant red and black berries you would expect.  The aromatics launch into your cheeks with bountiful friendly acids, yielding to a round clean finish.

In summary: Overall, rates an easy three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, garnering a best value designation.
