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.

2018 / 750 ml.

Item #: 95334

JS9898 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, August 2, 2021
Blackberry, blueberry, sage and five spice on the nose. Medium-to full-bodied with fine tannins. Balanced and creamy with a fresh, juicy character palate. Silky texture with great structure. Savory finish with length. Peppery and spicy aftertaste. A blend of 92% carmenere and 8% petit verdot. Try in 2023.
SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 15, 2021
Unctuously rich and juicy, with concentrated dark cherry and blackberry flavors that are loaded with cooking spice accents. Features ripe tannins and savory hints on the long, creamy finish. Carmenère and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2026. 18,000 cases made, 5,350 cases imported.
VN9393 pts. - Vinous - May 2021
The 2018 Carménère Purple Angel by Montes is a blend of Carménère with 8% Petit Verdot from Colchagua, aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, four-fifths of them new. Rich purple in the glass with a garnet shimmer. The mentholated, thyme-infused nose delivers plum chutney and clear layers of white pepper and smoky wood. A delicate, juicy wine with good volume in the mouth; the lush feel and muscular but loose tannins run on to a finish of power and flavor.

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.

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)

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.

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.

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.
