Natalie's Score: 90/100

Produced by Montes, this is savoury, dark plum and cedar brush nose on this full-bodied well-priced Argentine red wine blend. Lots of mocha and dark chocolate on the nose and palate from generous oak aging. this wine was matured in oak barrels for 10 months, both new and used French oak. Pair with chorizo sausages or jambalaya.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: game burgers, beef steak..

Reviews and Ratings

Elizabeth Vickers rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A bottle consumed on Jan 6th/18 at home birthday dinner for ET. Unfortunately, not as well enjoyed as would normally be the case. However, it was a lovely cab and still have another bottle!

2nd bottle consumed on April 8th/18 for Maureen's birthday dinner. Served with ribs and all the fixin's. Tasty cab enjoyed with the ribs and a bit of hard cheddar and bread on the side!
Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted March 7th 2017, opened before dinner nice dark cherry and spice notes.
Nice flavours on the palate. Easy to drink. Soft tannins and a nice finish. Great price at 12.95. Great table wine. Burger wine. Was nice with smoked cheddar and crackers.
Produced by Montes, The Terroir Series was formerly known as Kaiken's Corte line of wines. Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with some Malbec and Petit Verdot, the red blend was aged 10 months in new and older oak barrels. This full-bodied wine is savoury, dark plum and cedar on the nose with ripe, dark fruits and dark chocolate on the palate. Pair with game shish kebab and good friends. - Community Wine Reviews
