MONTES LIMITED SELECTION
Carmenère, the legendary lost variety of Bordeaux, is a recent addition to the Montes Limited Selection series. A wine of dark purple-ruby-red color with typical Carmenère character; on the nose there are lovely aromas of black pepper and strawberry, while in the mouth wild blueberry and blackberry flavors show though, with hints of dark chocolate, black plum and a touch of vanilla and coffee, accompanied by Carmenere’s characteristic spiciness. A very smooth, elegant, velvety and mouth-filling wine with the rounded, soft tannins distinctive of Carmenère, and a long, memorable finish.
Wine and Food Attributes
Dark fruit, mineral, iron ore, pepper.
A great mid week dinner wine, great with a bacon and Gruyère burger, sauteed mushrooms and onions. Mushrooms will intensify the earthiness in the Carmenère and the pungency of the cheese will bring out the fruit.
