The 2008 Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon is a nice, smooth, drinkable wine. There's plum, ripe fruit, and a little earthiness on the nose. In the mouth nice tannins complement the smoothness . We found it a tad bitter on the finish, however. Overall, a relatively simple wine that is really quite easy to drink but not anything fantastic. There are a number of users on Cellartracker who believe this wine is still too young, which may be the case, but we can only rate it as it stands now. from The Reverse Wine Snob

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
