Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

This time around, I picked up two bottles of Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 from Chile.

This has been a favourite of mine for over 7 years now. All Montes Alpha red wines are great wines. And since these great wines cost less than half of their price in India elsewhere, it makes sense to bring them into the country at every opportunity.

The cabernet sauvignon is a full-bodied wine with a long persistence and a wonderful finish. It has an intense ruby colour with a chocolate and blackcurrant fruit flavour. I really like this wine after it is decanted for some 10 minutes. The full nose and the palate impact are evident, and the wine can be relished.

I am recommending this wine as a strong buy at approximately INR 720. This price is closer to INR 1,800 in India. Can we ask Indian Government to encourage wine drinking by allowing great products to come in at some 10% duty instead of 100% ?

We, wine drinkers, are still waiting. The only opportunity we get is to buy some of these excellent wines outside the country at zero duty at duty-free shops in international airports.

Let us see ! There are more pressing things requiring urgent attention and resolution by the government of India at this moment, as we all know !
