The 2006 Purple
Angel is composed of 92% Carmenere
and 8% Petit Verdot (an increasingly
important blending grape in Chile)
aged for 18 months in new French oak
before bottling without filtration.
Purple/black in color, it has a splendid
perfume of toasty oak, pencil lead,
incense, sage, blueberry, and blackberry.
Layered, bordering on opulent,
this full-throttle wine has gobs of fruit,
succulent flavors, and a long, pure
finish. Cellar it for 5-7 years and drink
it from 2015 to 2026. It is another
example of just how good Carmenere
can be when grown in the right terroir
with extended hang-time.
