Montes Cherub Rosé of Syrah 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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

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.
