This superb wine represents a whole new dimension for Carmenère, the long-lost grape variety that recently resurfaced in Chile after being presumed extinct in Bordeaux, its original home. Purple Angel, has been recognized as the best Carmenère of Chile. Critics of all the world, named this wine, as a “wine from another planet”.
The nose presents its habitual elegance with outstanding ripe red and black berries over a backdrop of sweet spices. Dark chocolate and mocha notes from aging in French oak combine very well with the variety’s characteristic fruity aromas. In palate is well structured with soft, ample tannins. – Monteswines.com
Full body, tight and compressed with an amazing texture and density. Fantastic fine tannins that are silky and polished. This is perhaps the greatest Purple Angel ever. Full body, tight and compressed with an amazing texture and density. Fantastic fine tannins that are silky and polished. I love the energy and intensity. A blend of 92% carmenere and 8% petit verdot. One for the cellar but I can’t wait to drink it again. — Jamesuckling.com 2018
