Natalie's Score: 97/100

Montes Purple Angel 2019 is an elegant 92% Carmenere with the balance in Petit Verdot sourced from vines growing in granitic, clay, glacial and fluvial soils of the Colchagua Valley. Look for ripe and concentrated dark fruits, dark spices, mocha, vanilla and toasty oak spice on this juicy, beautifully balanced and popular Chilean red. Pour with bacon-wrapped filet mignon or hold in cellar for eight-plus years.

Food pairings: veal roast, slow-cooked brisket of beef, rabbit fricassee.

Reviews and Ratings

Montes Purple Angel 2019 Carmenère is a consistent crowd-pleaser, dry, full-bodied and elegant with black currant, blackberry, sweet dried tobacco leaf, pepper spice, cocoa, subtle black olive and dried herb flavours zesty and long on the finish. Produced from mostly Carmenère (92%) with the balance in Petit Verdot. Drink or hold. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
