    October 28, 2013 - Worth the wait. Great on opening but even better following night. Dark rich color and cassis flavor, earthy

    October 7, 2013 - Consistent with last years note, still has a high concentration and rustic structure, tanins need more time to mellow down, many years left in this.
    Note, I dont think this is the Alpha series, but this must be antecesor to the Montes Alpha M premium series.

    August 23, 2012 - This is one of the last 6 btls of an 12 case batch that I bartered for back in 2001. First btl Drunk since the wine opened up, all others where totally shut down, rustic & agressively tánnic, unpleasent even after 4-5 hrs decanting. Today it is lovely!! Dark ruby w/ bricked ring.
    The legs are Slow. It smells like Black currant (cassis), Blackberry, Forest floor, Mushroom, Cedar, and Oak. It tastes like Blueberry, Black currant (cassis), Fig, Plum, Mushroom, Forest floor, Coffee, Medium Toast, Oak, Lavender, leather and Tobacco. The body is Full. The wine has Round, silky texture. The wine finishes Long. Id' say it just starter its dcescending cicle, a very enjoyable wine. I'll try the next one next year.
