Montes Napa Angel Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Lively and generous deep garnet red color. Well-structured, rounded and rich, this wine provides a robust mouth-filling sensation. The wine is layered with red berry fruitiness, cedar, spice, and hints of very subtle and delicate smokiness. Long in the mid-palate with rich and smooth tannins. A fruit forward and rich wine. Decanting the wine for at least one hour before serving is recommended for best enjoyment. Ideal pairing with roast pork belly, ratatouille, leg of lamb, chicken with mole and aged cheeses. This wine is recommended to be aged for at least 10 years.

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.

The 2006 Napa Angel Cabernet was youthful with medium intensity flavors of raspberries, black cherries, pomegranate and anise. There was a good amount of oak, toast, nutmeg and earth. The acidity and tannins were balanced, but overall the wine could use more time to develop and mellow out. This would be a great wine to by as a gift for a friend to keep a few years down the road.

By Montes. Deep, impressively extracted and brimming with lots of keenly defined and carefully oaked Cabernet fruit, this nicely crafted effort is at once both very rich and shows a fine sense of proportion and polish that wins it high marks. It has lots
