The transparency is incredible to this year of Purple Angel. Aromatic and bright with blueberry, fresh herbs and spice. Full body, silky and perfectly polished tannins. Fabulous length and layers. Superb. Blend made from 46% carmenere from Marchigue, 46% from Apalta and 8% petit verdot. Drink or hold. Score - 97. (James Suckling, jamessuckling.com, May 12, 2016)
This dry purplish red coloured wine features medium woody, empyreumatic, spicy, fruity and vegetal scents and offers a broad texture as well as fleshy tannins.
A fantastic wine that blends both elegance and power. Purple Angel showcases the spicy touches typical of Carmenere, with ripe, gentle and soft tannins, it’ s a full bodied, concentrated wine that combines red berries and dark chocolate on the mouth with alluring cigar box, blackberries and plum aromas on the nose. This superb wine, a blend of 92% Carmenère and 8% Petit Verdot, 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. This is such a beautifully textured wine, the dish deserves spice to play with the black pepper notes, Steak au Poivre, for example.
"Suave and plush, with a broad, open texture that transmits a spicy array of dark cherry, currant, blackberry and cocoa powder notes. Very creamy, with silky tannins on the finish of Asian spice and chocolate. Drink now through 2022." Purple Angel has dialed up with even more fruit purity then in the past. This is the new exciting Chile that showcases Carmenere as grown in the Colchagua region. Best Purple Angel yet! (Stephen Schiedel, Portfolio Manager for Wines of North and South America)
