Community Tasting Notes 7

    December 10, 2021 - What a great Cabernet Sauvignon based Bordeaux blend from Chile this is.

    Full bodied and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.

    Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, vegetables, spices, earth, chocolates, tobacco, coffee, cola and black pepper.

    Dry and very fruity on the palate with nice complexity and mouthfeel.

    This 8 year old is delicious now and not showing much age. Will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

    This Single Vineyard is a little heavy on the vanilla right now, but I enjoyed it regardless. Gets earthier as it opens up (2 hours).

    A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels.

    14.5% alcohol by volume.

    93 points.

    $95.

    July 29, 2021 - Nice bottle. Black in color. 80% Cab-10% Cab F-5% Merlot-5% PV. Will be great in 10 or 15 years. Needs Meat! Thick!

    December 2, 2020 - this is a solid wine. full bodied, opaque, round, with just the right amount of acidity to balance the fruit and voluptuousness it possesses. the nose is lovely too, with its blueberry jam, chocolate, vanilla and tobacco. drinking well and lots of life left. nothing wrong here. yet, for all that it has going for it, it doesn't knock your socks off, as much as you want it to. (at its price point and where it ranks in the montes lineup), i was hoping for something a little more unique or singular...

    March 13, 2020 - Winespecials Wine Evening (Restaurant Holz und Feuer, Kirchheim, Germany): Glass: Gabriel Universal
    80% CS, 10% CF, 5% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Popped and poured. Clear, deep ruby color. Clean, nose, not very expressive.
    On the palate a bit hot (14,5% abv). Red fruit, dense, deep and long. Well made, but you can feel that this wine is designed and has no soul or excitement. Boring. 90-91+
