Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

(1 customer review)

RM134.00 RM107.20

Size: 750ml

Grape Variety:

90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot

Tasting Notes:

Deep ruby-red in colour, with violet tones. The nose is elegant and complex with aromas of very well-blended ripe red and black fruit. Aromas of crème de cassis, tobacco, and black pepper stand out against a backdrop of toast and pastry notes. The palate is smooth but well-structured, which makes this wine a pleasure to drink now, but with years of cellaring potential ahead of it. Its round and near-sweet tannins balance very well with the acidity. Generous volume on the mid-palate of our 2017 Montes Alpha delivers a lasting and elegant finish.

Food Pairing:

Highly recommended with red meats, Mongolian beef, spaghetti with Bolognese sauce, and lambchops with Cabernet and mushroom sauce.

Critic Reviews:

92 Points: James Suckling 2019 – Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Blueberries and blackcurrants and hints of flowers. Some black olives, too. Medium body, very fine tannins and juicy fruit character. This is a wine that pleases you with its aromatic qualities and then draws you through the palate. Drink now.
