2013 Montes Alpha Cab Sauv (mini review)

Dark in color with a nice cherry nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with some nice soft red cherries coming through. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice smooth tannins, acidity and some ncie dryness. The LCBO description seems accurate full bodied and smooth. I would give it an 88+.
