Montes Syrah Cherub Rose Reserve Chile Valle Central Rapel Colchagua Valley Red 2009
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

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.
