Viña Montes is a modern-day success story. Started in only 1988, Montes has quickly realized the dream of its founders: pioneering the production of premium quality, “first-growth” Chilean wine respected by critics and trade, while elevating the winemaking profile of Chile on the world stage.

The nose offers an interesting combination of potency and elegance with predominantly intense aromas of black fruits such as blackberries and figs with light toasted notes that come from aging in French oak barrels. On the palate, it is very well structured and offers incredibly round tannins that lend volume, breadth, and a soft, sweet sensation. Very well-balanced acidity toward the mid-palate delivers an elegant, lingering finish.
