Mar. 29, 2002: VIÑA MONTES Alpha M Santa Cruz 1999 (92 points, $72)

This wine is made from a vineyard just a stone's throw away from Casa Lapostolle's Clos Apalta, yet it's totally different in style. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot is a racy and pure red, with cassis, suave smoke, mineral and —James Molesworth
