Montes Classic Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 Wine Review (Number 2 in Flight- NW)

Tasting notes:

Nose shows some berries and odd plastic-like aromas
Licorice and herbs on the palate
Finishes a little burnt

For my money, I can recommend a number of Chilean Cabs that taste better. This one wasn't very good. The flavors are off and nothing seems integrated. It cost $10.

I guessed wrong in the blind flight, thinking this was a Chilean Merlot that went bad. Anyhow, it was the worst wine in the flight.

Number 2 in flight: Not a good Cab- I wouldn't buy this again. Raise a glass of Concha Y Toro or Casa Lapostolle instead!
