Montes Folly has a strong deep ruby red color. In the nose, the wine is both very intense and elegant with lively blackberries, blueberries and plums with hints of chocolate aromas. On the palate, the wine is layered and dense, showing exceptional complexity and structure, while blackberry, boysenberry, mocha and espresso flavors are supported by velvety and powerful tannins followed by a very long finish.
Highly recommended with red meats, rib eye steak, lamb, venison, baby back pork ribs, Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze.
Montes Folly art is designed by acclaimed illustrator Ralph Steadman and is considered a collector's item as his paintings change at every available vintage. The 2010 label theme is an illustration of an iceberg found in Lake Gray, Torres del Paine, Chilean Patagonia.

Even if other people tell you it's folly to pursue your dream, keep chasing it. This Folly Syrah from Montes is the result of crazy ideas and a plan. This big beautiful red is packed full of ripe blackberry fruit and peppery spice. It is one of the best reds from Chille or anywhere in the world. Cheers to you Douglas Murray!
