Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Distinctive flavors of intense blueberry, blackberry and chocolate. Montes Purple Angel is layered, structured, and balanced. Intense purple in color, this wine has distinctive and delicate hints of chocolate and cigar box aromas. The Carmenère grapes from the Apalta estate provide elegance, spiciness, and dark fruit flavors. The Petit Verdot, also from Apalta, adds structure along with the wildness of black berries. Finally, the Carmenère from Marchigue –a cooler area – adds spicy and lively notes. This wine is full bodied, with a considerable amount of ripe tannins that bestow grip and structure to this lovely wine.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Purple Angel is a blend of Carmenere and Petit Verdot that might be the only competition for Terrunyo’s Carmin de Peumo for top Carmenere-based wine in Chile. Purple/black in color, it displays a splendid nose of exotic spices, herbs, lavender, incense, blueberry, and blackberry. Dense, chewy, and opulent on the palate, this is a rich, already complex offering that is meant strictly for pleasure-seekers. Enjoy it from 2013-2022. "

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....

Learn About Carmenere

Carmenere(car-men-YEHR) Chilean Jewel Carmenere is yet another grape that was eventually exiled from the Bordeaux blend. In the late 1800's, Carmenere was brought over to Chile from France, and it never turned back. For a while, Chilean growers thought this grape was Merlot and labeled their wines as such.
