Wine Advocate 92 points - The 2010 Montes Alpha M is a typical Medoc blend of a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon with 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% of both Merlot and Petit Verdot from their vineyards in Apalta next to the winery in the Colchagua Valley. It is aged in the best French oak barrels in a magnificent cellar with Gregorian chants continuously playing through the PA system. Its a serious, meaty Bordeaux blend with a Mediterranean accent, aromas of red and black fruit, earth and some floral undertones, a medium-bodied palate with slightly dusty tannins, good freshness and balance, and it should get polished with some more time in bottle. I tasted 1999 and 2004 and they are still young and vibrant, but obviously there are (huge) differences in oenology and viticulture, especially since 2009. Drink 2015-2025.  (Jun 2014)

Wine Spectator 96 points - Beautifully concentrated, with a floral undertone to the rich yet racy wild berry, cassis and damson plum skin fruit character thatís tightly wound around fine tannins. The finish is long and compact, but this needs time in the cellar to fully shine. Best from 2014 through 2020. From Chile.óN.W. (Oct 17 2012)
