Montes Purple Angel 2015

Member Review by zufrieden:

Looks dark, deep and divinely delectable, this Purple Angel, and I can report that it is unbelievably dense. The colour is almost black... opaque; the nose is of blueberry, huckleberry (bilberry, whortleberry) - soft and sweet - like those wild berry pies mother used to make. Absolutely stunning and inviting. Mouthfeel is also dense, smooth and blueberry-infused with a hint of some oriental spice (cinnamon bark?). Finish is very long with intense fruit and high viscosity. Milk chocolate overtones are now emerging as well. Perfect now, but can be kept for a few more years. Best Chilean wine I have tasted yet... and I have tasted a few good ones. Best Purple Angle as well. I am pleasantly surprised. 94.

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.
