Purple Angel by Montes 2014 Carmenère

Impressive and very deep garnet red color. Tremendous aromatic intensity with a predominance of ripe red and black berry fruit intermingled with aromas of sweet spices and pastries. The aromas contributed by the French oak meld very well, lending subtle notes of dark chocolate and vanilla accompanied by well-balanced toast. The palate is very well structured with very smooth tannins that lend breadth and complexity. This is a wine with juicy acidity, generous volume, and flavors in line with its aromatic profile, ending with a long and elegant finish. Highly recommended with red meats, lamb chops with rosemary, pork ribs, and cannelloni.
