Montes 2013 "Purple Angel" Carmenere, Chile

Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good+ (91)
Price: $85
KWG Score: 92.7
No. Professional Ratings: 4
# of Cases: 15,000
This very dark ruby colored Carmenere based wine opens with a musty black cherry and new tire rubber like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a mineral infused black currant with notes of black olive along with hints of minerality and a touch of oak. The finish is dry and its mild tannins are nicely prolonged. This Carmenere is an interesting wine and not traditional at all. Our tasting group suggested pairing it with a slow cooked beef brisket. Enjoy - Ken

Clinking Glasses Before Tasting Wine: Originates from medieval times. Milk was often spoiled, water was often polluted. Wine was usually safe. The host would drink the wine first and then clink glasses with guests to show the wine was good and safe for drinking.
