Napa Angel By Montes Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2009

External Review by We Speak Wine:

WINEMAKING NOTES: Napa Angel 2009 is a Cabernet Sauvignon based wine. Soils are alluvial loam with a small proportion of clay, creating medium-to-low water holding capacity conditions that stress the vines, concentrating the fruit characteristics. The mild climate resulting from the proximity of the Pacific Ocean contributes fresh, fruity flavors. Grapes are hand-picked with yields of 3.5 tons per acre. After harvesting, the grapes were cold macerated for 7 days and underwent a 10 days fermentation process at 82° to 86° F. When the wine finished fermentation, it went through a skin contact process for 10 days. 45% of the wine is oak aged in new French barrels. TASTING NOTES: With a deep rich red color this wine shows earthy notes and hints of strawberry and black currant. Round and elegant it provides a smooth mouth-filling sensation with a very well integrated French oak with notes of leather, dark chocolate and a delicate toastiness. Long in the mid-palate with soft and elegant tannins. A fruit forward and rich wine. SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Decanting the wine for at least one hour before serving is recommended for best enjoyment. Serve at cellar temperature – approximately 62˚ to 65˚ F. Ideal pairing with Portobello risotto, ratatouille, chicken with mole and aged cheeses. This wine is recommended to be aged for at least 10 years. Alcohol: 14.5% pH: 3.77 Total Acidity: 6.1 (g/l) Volatile Acidity: 0.74 (g/l) Residual Sugar: 0.5 (g/l) ** Only 7 in Stock **

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.
