2011 Montes "Purple Angel" Valle de Colchagua Chile
*Top 100 Wines of 2014* This is a crazy red with dried chipotle and red chili pepper character with hints of dark fruits. Blueberry concentration. Full body, with fabulous fruit and an underlying firm tannin structure. Very silky tannins. This is the best Carmenere-based red from Chile. 92% Carmenere and 8% Petit Verdot.
A fleshy red, with plenty of spicy notes behind the rich, well-sculpted dark plum, cherry and mocha flavors. Dark chocolate and caramel accents emerge on the finish, presenting some savory accents. Carmenère and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2017.
