Natalie's Score: 93/100

The Carmenère wine grapes for Montes Alpha 2015 were sustainably dry farmed. This Carmenère is incredibly concentrated rich and deep with fleshy black plums that you can dive head first into. Just another phenomenal wine from Montes with dark plum, blackberry and dark chocolate flavours on the palate.

Carmenère food pairings: wine-braised beef, turkey with heavy sauces, wild boar, bison chilli.

Glorious Game Wine

Reviews and Ratings

Elizabeth Vickers rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This Chilean Carmenere was consumed on Sat, Oct 3rd with Filet Mignon off the Barbie! Just the
immediate family (ET, Maureen, myself); baked potato, corn on the cob, mushrooms, etc.
Wonderfully smooth wine that disappeared too soon!
The Carmenère wine grapes for Montes Alpha are sustainably dry-farmed with controlled irrigation. Another phenomenal wine from this producer with plushy plummy, ripe blackberry, dark chocolate, minty and spicy flavours on the palate. - Community Wine Reviews
