2016 Montis Red Wine
Montis, Latin for “mountain”, is a multi-vineyard, multi-varietal blend that showcases top performing vineyards on Red Mountain. Charlie simply can’t resist outstanding fruit, and we know our members can’t resist red blends, and so a specialty wine was made for the 2016 vintage. Montis is an approachable blend, at nearly 50/50 Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, drawing on a finish of Malbec to complete the flavor profile. We find bright, red fruit tones, complimented by that notorious Red Mountain herbal quality, all set within fine grained tannins and a juicy finish. Drink now through 2027.
