Montes Classic Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
From the same people who craft the oh-so-lovely and delicious Montes Alpha M, Montes Folly, and Purple Angel, we have the Montes Classic Series Cabernet Sauvignon. And yes, it is retailed at a ridiculously low price which warrants borrowing your friends big truck so that you may take advantage of this crazy-good deal... Okay, so you don't need a big truck because we deliver to your door, but you get the picture... We are dreaming about the meat dishes, grilled, braised, roasted and more, that we're going to make in order to have just one more excuse to open another of our bottles. This is a flat-out don't miss requirement winelovers. Be responsible and get some!
James Suckling: "This has an assertive oak presence with a very toasty, spicy sheen across the ripe plums, red currants and violets. The palate has a super juicy feel with long, plush and very vibrant, intense, spicy dark-berry flavors. Drink now." Apr 2020
Winery: "A very bright and lively violet-red in color with a predominance of ripe red and black fruit aromas such as strawberries, plums and figs on the nose. Notes of crème de cassis intermingle with sweet spices such as nutmeg and black pepper. Aromas of tobacco and dark chocolate meld with light notes of leather contributed by the French oak that also lends sweet sensations to the palate. The wine stands out for its well-balanced acidity, medium body, and incredibly smooth tannins. The moderately persistent finish echoes the notes perceived on the nose. Highly recommended with braised beef with french fries, steak and eggs, paella, cannelloni, and lasagna."
