    Winemaker's Notes:

    Distinctive flavors of intense blueberry, blackberry and chocolate. Montes Purple Angel is layered, structured, and balanced. Intense purple in color, this wine has distinctive and delicate hints of chocolate and cigar box aromas. The Carmenère grapes from the Apalta estate provide elegance, spiciness, and dark fruit flavors. The Petit Verdot, also from Apalta, adds structure along with the wildness of black berries. Finally, the Carmenère from Marchigue –a cooler area – adds spicy and lively notes. This wine is full bodied, with a considerable amount of ripe tannins that bestow grip and structure to this lovely wine.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2007 Purple Angel is a blend of Carmenere and Petit Verdot that might be the only competition for Terrunyo’s Carmin de Peumo for top Carmenere-based wine in Chile. Purple/black in color, it displays a splendid nose of exotic spices, herbs, lavender, incense, blueberry, and blackberry. Dense, chewy, and opulent on the palate, this is a rich, already complex offering that is meant strictly for pleasure-seekers. Enjoy it from 2013-2022.
