Where It's From

Country / Chile

View more wines from Chile

With its stunning, snowy mountains and beautiful beaches, Chile would be captivating even if it wasn’t turning out some of the most interesting and accessible wines in the world. But large producers like Concha y Toro and Casa LaPostolle have put Chile on the wine map with their complex yet value-driven Merlots and Cabernets, and lately smaller regions like Maipo, Casablanca, and the Bio Bio Valley have become more widely available.

Now, Syrah, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Malbec, Sauvignon Blanc, and even that elusive beast of the wine world--affordable Pinot Noir—have joined the ranks of Chile’s most famous offerings. And don’t forget Chile’s signature grape, Carmenere--a peppery, purpley beast that goes wonderfully with grilled meat dishes. Best of all, Chile offers some of the best value in the world, with many outstanding wines selling for under $12.

2016 / 750 ml.

Item #: 90152

JS9696 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Friday, April 5, 2019
Incredibly complex with sweet-tobacco, iron, blackberry, black-olive and dried-strawberry aromas. Full body, ultra-refined tannins and a rich finish. Harvested before the rains. Juicy tannins. Very structured and big style, but shows balance. Drink or hold.
SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - May 31, 2019
Very plush, with explosively rich and intense flavors of dark cherry, Christmas pudding and blackberry that are filled with Asian spice notes. Dark chocolate and white pepper accents linger on the luscious finish. Syrah. Drink now through 2025. 4,000 cases made, 300 cases imported.

JS9797 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Friday, June 17, 2022
A ripe and brooding syrah, showing good depth of blackberries, ripe dark cherries and violets, together with a refined, spicy edge and some savory, balsamic character. Concentrated and rich, but still well-drinkable. Full-bodied palate, saturated with dusty tannins that seamlessly knit the palate, rendering a broad but cohesive mouth-feel. Lots of hedonistic pleasures here, but not over the top. A “winter wine” according to Montes. Drink or hold. (James Suckling)
SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Apr 30, 2023
This bold red has a garrigue and fresh nutmeg cast, with a potent core of blueberry and blackberry. Picks up spiced pastry and rich milk chocolate notes on the finish, which linger around suave tannins. Drink now through 2030. 3,000 cases made, 250 cases imported. (Aaron Romano)

Item #: 97014

JS9797 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, February 3, 2022
Blackberries, blueberries, violets and dried herbs on the nose. Full body with round, chewy tannins. Juicy palate with a chalky texture and savory character. Meaty notes on the finish, together with tea leaves and dark fruit. Lively acidity and some structure through to the end. Drink or hold.
WE9494 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 3/1/2022
Opaque in color and fully ripe on the nose, with aromas of cool earth, graphite, blackberry and black olive, this Apalta vineyard Syrah feels rich and layered, with just enough grip. Dark berry and cassis flavors are toasty and wind down nicely on a lush finish with creamy weight and silky tannins; drink through 2028.
SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Mar 31, 2022
This has a fresh allure to the crushed red cherry and plum flavors, which carry a rich acidity. Juicy in the midpalate, with a creamy finish that’s loaded with Asian spice. Drink now through 2025. 3,000 cases made, 245 cases imported.
VN9292 pts. - Vinous - May 2021
The 2018 Syrah Montes Folly from Apalta spends 16 months in French oak, four-fifths new, and offers up blackberry jam, vanilla and smoked cigar box over a fleshy backdrop that adds the exotic touch one expects in a well-made Syrah. Taut and complex, it is more indulgent and juicy than the 2017 incarnation, with firm tannins. Hold on to it for a year or two.

Purple Angel by Montes 2019 / 750 ml.

2019 / 750 ml.

Item #: 98211

JS9898 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Friday, June 17, 2022
Consistently one of the best and most layered carmeneres from Chile and, indeed, the world. Intriguing Cuban cigar and roasted bay-leaf character to the blackcurrants, blackberries and exotic spices. Some sandalwood, black chocolate, cedar and baked red chili pepper, too. Full-bodied, creamy and voluptuous, but still fresh and juicy, with dried-leaf, dark-olive and finely ground cocoa-powder character. Dusty tannins and a long, refined finish. A blend of 92% carmenere from Apalta (46%) and Marchigue(46%) and 8% petit verdot from Apalta. Drink or hold.
VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Jun 2022
The 2019 Carménère Purple Angel is also 8% Petit Verdot from Colchagua, ard was 80% aged in new barrels for 18 months. Interse purple in color. The nose offers notes of ash, pyrazine, ripe plum, cedar and other aromas from the aging process. Creamy ard intense with refired tannins ard a broad, hefty flow; the moderate freshness adds a touch of juice. A long-lasting wine with a clear profile. (Joaquín Hidalgo)
SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 31, 2022
Opens with elegant details of plumeria and wet stone that fold over onto the palate, where lively acidity drives the clove-accented red currant and raspberry flavors, adding touches of vanilla bean and baker’s chocolate that persist and echo back the core flavors around fine tannins. Carmenere and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2028. 16,500 cases made, 3,000 cases imported. (Aaron Romano)

JS9898 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Friday, December 8, 2023
A consistent Purple Angel that really delivers the carmenere’s plushness when ripened well. Dark olives, blackberries and red chili chocolate with a splash of spice and cigar box. Fleshy and concentrated with plenty of fine-grained tannins that extend to a very creamy finish. 92% carmenere, around half from Marchigue and half from Apalta, with 8% petit verdot. Better from 2025. (Zekun Shuai)
VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Jun 2023
The 2020 Carménère Purple Angel contains a dash of Petit Verdot (8%), also from Apalta, Colchagua. It was aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 70% of them new. Purple in hue. The sun-kissed nose delivers plum and blackberry jam notes over nuanced layers of ash and spice against a balsamic backdrop. Indulgent and broad in the mouth. The expansive, voluminous palate is full of plummy flavor with a juicy flow and a lasting finish of ripe, fruity aromas. The warm year dialed up the sweetness. (Joaquín Hidalgo)
SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jan 8, 2024
Opens with an elegant array of fresh raspberry, pink peppercorn and river mint flavors before turning broad. Vanilla bean and cassis notes cling to a richly textured blackberry core that lingers around fine tannins, echoing back to the core flavors and adding notes of dark chocolate. Carmenère and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2034. 2,325 cases imported. (Aaron Romano)

Deep nose, full of tarry blackberries, ground dark peppercorn, dark spices and dried meat. Some dried Mediterranean herbs and cocoa powder, too. Dark fruit and spices seep into the medium-to full-bodied palate with chalky tannins and a long, creamy finish. Consistently a great-value syrah from Colchagua. Drink or hold.

2017 / 750 ml.

Item #: 92535

JS9898 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Friday, April 17, 2020
Such an amazing, floral nose with blackberries, blueberries, violets and other flowers. Full-bodied, yet so balanced and refined with vibrancy and energy. It’s really racy and exciting with a super long, beautiful finish. Tight and super polished. Needs two or three years to open more. Beauty. Drink after 2021.
VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Mar 2020
Blended with 8% Petit Verdot also from Colchagua, this Purple Angel Carménère has a mentholated, thyme-infused nose with clear hints of ripe blackberry and cherry and smoky wood. A delicate wine with good volume in the mouth. The lush feel and muscular but loose tannins add nutmeg and cedar at the end.
