This vintage of Montes Folly maintains the depth of color and violet rim very characteristic of Syrah. The nose shows very ripe fruit, such as cherry, blueberry, blackberry, and strawberry, with characteristic and intense aromas of sweet spice and candy. There’s a very balanced element of toast from the French oak, adding complexity to the aromatic profile. On the palate the wine is balanced, with impressive body and a very long finish.
Highly recommended with red meats, lamb, veal, and pork chops.

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.

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.
