Montes Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 review by Billy

Nose: Bland, blah. Where is it?
Palate: limp, flacid. What is in my mouth?
Finish: short, shallow.

The big loser of the evening wine flight was this Montes Reserve Cab from Chile. Overall one to avoid because there is not really anything there. Perchance I got a bad bottle, though the wine was not "corked". Perchance it was the last of a bottle that had been open too long. Nevertheless, it was worth avoiding.

I think you got a bad bottle. My experience was very different. Not a classic, but a pretty good value.

Yeah, must agree with anonymous. This is not a classic, per se, but a fine, drinkable wine.
