Montes Malbec 2013, Colchagua, Chile


My Rating 82 Points. 
Price $10.

Inky in color with a purplish rim.

Metallic and Light on the nose with blackberries, oak, plums, cherries, beef jerky, vanilla, licorice, chocolate, spices and white pepper.

Medium-bodied with medium acidity, and smoother than expected, with long legs.

Dry on the palate with cloves, oak, vanilla, blackberries, blueberries, plums, cherries, earth, tar, Animal notes, chocolate, mocha, coffee, metals and black pepper.

Medium plus on the finish, with nice, mature tannins, peppercorn and bitter almonds.

A Nice everyday red wine. A unique Malbec, yet simple, Well Balanced and enjoyable. However, it is light on the nose, and watery and hollow on the mid palate.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
