Montes Carménère Colchagua Valley Purple Angel 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Not yet reviewed; 2006 vintage rated 93+ points by Wine Advocate: ...92% Carmenere and 8% Petit Verdot... Purple/black in color, it has a splendid perfume of toasty oak, pencil lead, incense, sage, blueberry, and blackberry. Layered, bordering on opulent, this full-throttle wine has gobs of fruit, succulent flavors, and a long, pure finish.

One of Chile’s most renowned winemakers – Auriello Montes Sr. – blazed the path of bringing his country’s premium selections to the world when he joined forces with wine industry vet Douglas Murray and partners Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand in 1988. Together, they formed Viña Montes, which became the standard for premium Chilean wines with the introduction of Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon. In the quarter century since then, the company has been instrumental in raising awareness, affinity, and acclaim for Chilean wines in over 100 countries worldwide. Hailing from Apalta in Chile’s Cochalgua Valley, Viña Montes produces 950,000 cases annually through its vineyards La Finca de Apalta (in Apalta); El Arcangel Estate (in Marchigue); and Los Nogales Estate (in Curico). Among the company labels are Montes Alpha “M,” Montes Folly, Purple Angel, Montes Alpha, Montes Classic Series, Montes Cherub, and Montes Twins. In 2004, a new cellar was created at Apalta through an investment of more than US$7 million. Chilean architect Samuel Claro, from the Claro and Swinburn Agency, created the space, which was decorated by Paula Gutierrez, a nationally renowned designer. Here, technology and equipment reside in a peaceful environment incorporating Feng Shui elements – water, air, metal and wood- to encourage harmony and a positive atmosphere, enhancing the total experience and resulting wines.

剛開放瓶馬上喝時香氣濃郁,有Pinot noir的感覺,但是醒酒30分鐘後有點譅味,不值得$1300元

With our anniversary dinner, I picked a bottle of this on a whim and what a fantastic pick. The bottle is thick and heavy, something you want to take home and use as a weapon. The wine was decanted for about 45 minutes, deep, dark, a velvety purple that seemed to be screaming for something white to stain forever. It was an epic bottle of wine - the last glass was unreal having decanted for almost 2 hours. The fruit was big but balanced with a really nice acidity leaving the palette after swallowing but filling your head with this experience of smell, taste, and memories of that great Cuban cigar, berries from the farm stand, box woods and oak, and somehow blue skies and summer grass. We bought a half case of 2007 and a half case of 2009 and look forward to enjoying this for a few years to come.

The 2007 Purple Angel is a blend of Carmenere and Petit Verdot that might be the only competition for Terrunyo s Carmin de Peumo for top Carmenere-based wine in Chile. Purple/black in color, it displays a splendid nose of exotic spices, herbs, lavender, incense, blueberry, and blackberry.

WA 94pts. - According to the Wine Advocate: The 2007 Purple Angel is a blend of Carmenere and Petit Verdot that might be the only competition for Terrunyo s Carmin de Peumo for top Carmenere-based wine in Chile. Purple/black in color, it displays a splendid nose of exotic spices, herbs, lavender, incense, blueberry, and blackberry. Dense, chewy, and opulent on the palate, this is a rich, already complex offering that is meant strictly for pleasure-seekers. Enjoy it from 2013-2022.

Lebendiger und nach dunklen Früchten und Gewürzen riechender Duft. Eleganter Wein mit ausgereifter Tanninne, die dem Wein Struktur und Griff verleiht. Im Gaumen bilden sich Geschmäcker von schwarzen Beeren.
