Not particularly aromatic with faint suggestions of watermelon floating beneath earthy, lightly spicy and mineral top notes. Round and polished in the mouth, this is a wine of texture. the flavors are subtle, darkly fruited, hinting at chocolate with some meaty and juniper toned accents adding complexity but the main impression one gets here is how big and smooth this is in the mouth. The fruit takes on a tarter cast on the backend, still rather dark fruited though and then reverts to an herb, tobacco and mineral quality, along with hints of blackberries, on the fairly long finish. Not my style but I can see this working well with some red meat this summer,, or duck. 87pts

If you're a fan of Syrah, particularly cool climate Chilean Syrah the Montes Cherub Syrah Rose is a great bottle to open this spring. The rose holds on to the cherry and spiciness of Syrah, but refreshes and pairs well with lighter foods, yet it's bigger rose and commands a presence in your mouth. This is a perfect example the amazing range of Syrah from Chile.

This was a very happy little Rose. The nose was all light fruits, almost strawberry and white plum. It had a tart finish, very pleasant, uncomplicated. It was playful like the label. I enjoyed this wine with broccoli salad, white chicken chili, and croissants at home.

So I have been in to Chilean wines… well I was silly and got this one of the notes and the bottles label. “how cute I cherub” RULE number one in buying wine don’t go off the pic on the label. This is a rose of syrah, I love syrah I new this was going to be deferent but wow.. I was soooo expecting a more fruit forward rose, its SO dry and tart you cant taste any flavor, it has a slightly sweet nose and I hint of strawberry but the alcohol is overwhelming, I didn’t have any of the notes of “rose and red fruit” sorry boys and Colchagua Valley in Chile but for me you missed this one big time

Good, not great. A touch too fruity to be taken seriously, but there's some nice strawberry fruit in here. Went well with roasted halibut.

Plenty of strawberry/cherry lashed fruit with the dry tannins giving a sophisticated mouthful despite the cherryade colour, glowing as if radiated. Ripe, gentle fruit to the fore, dry tannins to the finish, And, always an indicator of decent quality, a long lasting aftertaste. http://www.spittoon.biz/montes_cherub_rose_2008_colcha.html

I loved this rose. I tend to shy away from Rose normally because I find them too sweet. This one was perfect. It was dry, with good body. Aromas of strawberry/raspberry, and no overpowering sweetness afterwards. The colour, too, was a fantastic deep pink. I would definitely buy this one again. We had it before dinner, and with pork tenderloin - and it was perfect either way. It's a great price too!

External Reviews for Montes Cherub Rosé of Syrah

External Review
Vintage: 2011 08/07/2013

After several years of experimenting, Aurelio Montes settled on producing a rosé from Syrah (the grape he made famous in Chile with the country's first Ultra Premium Syrah, Montes Folly). Montes Cherub is a seductive, elegant, dry wine, with an intense cherry-pink color. Expressive of the grape and its terroir, it shows distinct Syrah character: spiciness and hints of strawberry, rose and orange peel. There is a strong backbone of acidity with residual tannins that gives the wine structure. For a rosé, it shows good fruit concentration and a richness in texture across the palate that leads to a delightfully long finish. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

Montes' Cherub is a seductive, elegant, dry wine, with an intense cherry-pink color. It is a well-made expression of the grape variety and terroir. On the nose and the palate, it demonstrates a distinctive Syrah character with spiciness and hints of strawberries, rose and orange peel. With good fruit concentration, it shows richness in texture across the palate that leads to a delightfully long finish. It has a strong backbone of acidity and a slight amount of tannin that gives the wine a defined structure. - Winery

Ein frischer, junger und fruchtiger Wein. Aromen von Erdbeeren, leichte florale Noten, vor allem Rosen sowie Orangenschalen. Im Gaumen entfalten sich reiche Fruchtaromen mit einem wunderbar langen Abgang.

Opens nicely, with hints of olive, earth, rubber and leather. The palate is juicy and lively, while flavors of coconut, toast and black fruit meld together in good fashion. A fresh, clean style of Syrah that’s forward but not hard or tannic.

A ripe, up-front style, displaying lots of briar, anise, plum cake and fig flavors that push through the juicy, full-bodied finish. Very solid. Drink now.
