From the bottle:
"Meet the Twins: A masterstroke of varietal blending from Chile's winemaking legend, Aurelio Montes. On their own, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon shine, but when paired up, these two classic varieties complement each other perfectly. It's a sensational double-bill: smooth, velvety texture from the Malbec with wonderful richness, structure and fruit from the Cabernet. Part Malbec, part Cabernet -- adding up to a wine that's greater than the sum of its parts.
The 2012 Montes Twins Red Wine begins with a pleasant aroma of blackberry, spice, vanilla and licorice. Tasting the wine reveals a velvety smooth texture, lots of rich, spice infused tart dark fruit and more licorice. Nice firm tannins lead into the dry, long finish. This is quite a tasty blend!
