Natalie's Score: 90/100

A terrific pinot noir, especially at this price point. Vibrant notes of sweet fleshy ripe cherries and raspberries. Smooth and medium- to full-bodied. Delicious! Perfect for movie night and casual get-togethers. Lovely long finish with spices and dark cherry. A value wine from truly one of Chile's best producers.

Pinot Noir food pairings: roast chicken or turkey, grilled salmon, smoked or braised meats, ratatouille with roasted garlic.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Louise Wilson ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A bouquet of black cherry and generous smoky oak followed by flavours of plum, vanilla and baking spice. Light bodied with a satisfying finish. Acidity, alcohol and tannins are well balanced and integrated. Try with bacon wrapped scallops or a Portobello mushroom burger. Drink through 2015. Tasted Jan 2014.
A vibrant Chilean Pinot Noir incredibly well-priced. The word Montesrefers to the white-capped Andres mountains, whose melting snows turn into the pure water that naturally irrigates the vineyards. Montes also refers to the founder's name Aurelio Montes. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
