Montes Alpha Syrah

Region: Santa Cruz Valley

Notes:This ALPHA line shows how promising the Apalta Valley slopes are. This beautiful syrah has been aged in French oak barrels for one year and had only one soft filtering. A percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, also originating from Apalta, and some Viognier has been added to the final mixture. Of intense ruby red color, it has great aromas of blackberries and strawberry, with some floral, tobacco, leathery and smoky spice notes. Strong and full bodied on the palate, with soft and mature tannins. A very long, elegant and satisfying after taste. A superb Syrah reminiscent of Rhone style wines. This is a winner.

Serving Instructions:Room temperature 55
