Folly La Finca de Apalta Syrah 2012

With the release of the first Montes Alpha wine back in 1988, Montes became one of the first premium wineries of Chile. 100% Syrah, aged for 18 months in oak, rich Ruby with aromas of ripe black fruits, sweet spice and complex spice. On the palate juicy blackberry flavors with notes of cacao and toasty spices. Well balanced with acidity, full ripe rustic tannins, lingering ending with smoky spice. A big Syrah! Very nice! — 12 days ago

La Finca Clos d'Angel Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

The overall rating amongst a group of 4 on Christmas. Very smooth. Undertones of blackberry, chocolate, and mocha (yum). Was recommended to us by a sales associate at our local wine store. Very good for our purposes of drinking before dinner. — a month ago

Chilean Bordeaux blend, still going strong at 14. Straight-up Cab/ Merlot notes but not cedary/ dusty; a little structure ties it together. — a month ago


Purple Angel Colchagua Valley Carménère Petit Verdot 2015

Big, tannic, complex, and thought provoking. Compelling balance of fruit, oak, and herbals. Great wine with a long life ahead of it. — 4 days ago

Montes Alpha Colchagua Valley Syrah 2012

Unquestionably one of the best Syrahs I’ve encountered outside of France (okay, no, I haven’t tried enough, but still). Wonderfully rounded body, tons of mocha notes and a very lengthy finish. Not sure if other vintages are as good, but this one bangs. — 15 days ago
