MONTES TWINS 2016/2018
Country: Chile, Colchagua Valley.
Grape Varieties:Cabernet Sauvignon 35%, Syrah 30%, Carmenère 25%, Tempranillo 10%
Tasting Notes: It is a perfumed wine, with elegant aromas of ripe black fruit recalling fig and blackcurrant, typical of the Cabernet Sauvignon from this area. The Syrah makes its presence felt with delicate aromas of sweet spices and leather that heighten the character.
Fresh and juicy on the palate, due in no small part to the percentage of Tempranillo in the blend. The Carmenère lends smooth, round tannins for a light sweet sensation that lingers on its pleasing finish.

The Grape
Cab.Sauvignon Blend
Cabernet Sauvignon lends itself particularly well in blends with Merlot. This is actually the archetypal Bordeaux blend, though in different proportions in the sub-regions and sometimes topped up with Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot.

In the Médoc and Graves the percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend can range from 95% to as low as 40%. It is particularly suited to the dry, warm, free- draining, gravel-rich soils and is responsible for the redolent cassis characteristics as well as the depth of colour, tannic structure and pronounced acidity of Médoc wines. However 100% Cabernet Sauvignon wines can be slightly hollow-tasting in the middle palate and Merlot with its generous, fleshy fruit flavours acts as a perfect foil by filling in this cavity.

In St-Emilion and Pomerol, the blends are Merlot dominated as Cabernet Sauvignon can struggle to ripen there - when it is included, it adds structure and body to the wine. Sassicaia is the most famous Bordeaux blend in Italy and has spawned many imitations, whereby the blend is now firmly established in the New World and particularly in California and Australia.
