MONTES ALPHA Merlot
Handsome ruby-red color. Outstanding nose of red berries, black cherry, black pepper, with hints of tobacco. These elements come through on the palate, revealing a full-bodied wine. Mid-palate is round and velvety, with an added touches of vanilla and toast, followed by a long and smooth finish. Very elegant.
