Montes Purple Angel Apalta Vineyard Carmenere 2015

Carmenere from Colchagua Valley, Rapel Valley, Chile
Winemaker Notes
Impressive deep purplish-red in color. The nose presents its habitual elegance with outstanding aromas of ripe red and black berries over a backdrop of sweet spices. Dark chocolate and mocha notes from aging in French oak combine very well with the variety’s characteristic fruity aromas, resulting in a wine with tremendous aromatic complexity that continues to open with layer after layer of new and delicious sensations. The palate is well structured with soft, ample tannins. Acidity from the Petit Verdot lends juiciness and central nerve, qualities that predict excellent evolution and exceptional aging potential. The remarkable finish is elegant and very much in accordance with the nose. This is clearly an ideal wine to enjoy now—or in years to come.

Highly recommended with red meats, lamb chops with rosemary, pork ribs, and cannelloni.

Blend: 92% Carmenère, 8% Petit Verdot.

Critical Acclaim

This is perhaps the greatest Purple Angel ever. Full body, tight and compressed with an amazing texture and density. Fantastic fine tannins that are silky and polished. I love the energy and intensity. A blend of 92% carmenere and 8% petit verdot. One for the cellar but I can't wait to drink it again.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The bottle of the 2015 Purple Angel looks like a magnum, but it's only big, like the wine it contains. This is a ripe, heady and generously oaked blend of Carmenere with 8% Petit Verdot that has abundant herbal and spicy aromas and flavors. It matured in brand new French barriques for 18 months.
