Montes Classic Series Merlot
Country: Chile, Colchagua Valley
Tasting Note: A joyful and fruity wine on the nose, blending aromas of cedar, fresh red berries with a touch of vanilla and chocolate product of its French oak ageing. On the mouth it is soft and velvety with evident notes of raspberries and hints of blackberries, that combine very well with the typical spiciness of the variety, accompanied by deliciously plummy fruit flavors and mellow tannins. This Merlot is blended with 15% Cabernet Sauvignon to better marry with the oak, providing the necessary structure and finesse that will permit long term ageing.
Varietal: 100% Merlot
Pairing: Highly recommended with chicken with mushroom sauce and baked potatoes, meat and vegetable soup, corn meat pie, humitas (Chilean Tamales), lasagna.
