James Suckling Review
Beautiful richness and intensity on the nose with sliced plums, chocolate and some meat and earth. This is full-bodied with loads of fruit and ripe tannins. Smoky and rich. Flavorful finish. Still a baby. Please give this three or four years to come together. Drink after 2022.
Wine Tasting Notes
This vintage of the super icon Montes Alpha M impresses with an intense and very lively ruby color. The nose offers its characteristic elegance and aromatic richness. Notes of liquorice and cherry are immediately apparent, and as the wine opens up aromas of sweet chestnut, nutmeg, crème de cassis, and tobacco appear, all well-integrated with delicate toasted oak. The palate is beautifully balanced; medium- to heavy-bodied, with smooth tannins. Cooked black fruit flavors appear and underscore notes of sweet spice, which linger on the palate.
