A solid Carmener that needs time to open up but with good tannins and the aftertaste that comes from an excellent structure

😇 I looked up to the sky & the Purple Angel came down upon me filling my glass with light blocking purple rain that oozed aromas of black & blue berries w/ thick chocolate, vanilla & smokey oak - drink this godly juice she said 🍷

I dared embrace the heavenly nectar & succumbed to a full on palate explosion of ripe dark concentrated blackcurrant 💥

My mouth was left open in awe as my stained teeth yielded to the long silky finish & I myself turned into a naughty purple devil - spank me angel spank me 😈

Oak is heavy on the nose and palate. Intense Dark chocolate, cocoa and violets just jump from the glass. No green notes or typical Carmenere pyrazines.

😇 I looked up to the sky & the Purple Angel came down upon me filling my glass with light blocking purple ruby rain that oozed aromas of black & blue berries w/ thick chocolate, vanilla, dates, heavenly minerals & smokey oak - “drink this godly juice” she said in a booming voice🍷

I dared embrace the heavenly nectar & succumbed to a full on palate explosion of ripe dark concentrated blackcurrant/berry bathed in raspberry cocoa and minerals💥

My mouth was left open in awe as my purple stained teeth yielded to the long silky fruit loaded intense finish & I myself turned into a naughty purple devil - spank me angel, spank me 😈

🎵 “And through it all she offers me protection l, A lot of love and affection” you’re gonna be singing this all day now 🤣 “And down the waterfall wherever it may take me .. “

Violists and oak for days. Get a toothbrush when done!

Deep purple color. Round rich black fruits, vividly defined. Sweet smoky oak especially on the nose. Has the wild herbaceousness characteristic of carmenere, but here it adds layers and freshness without being too green or rough. Sometime the classics are classics for a reason!

Deep and richly flavored with ripe, well-balanced tannins. Great wine

Opaque. Elevated alcohol on the nose along with med + complexity dominated by black fruit, paprika, and chocolate. Full bodied and silky on the palate. Nicely structured and a fine finish. #montes #carmenere #purpleangel #colchagua #blend #chile #ctbucklinwine
