With this new vintage, Purple Angel shows a deep, carmine-red colour, typical of Carmenère. The aromas are complex, with pronounced black fruit, like blackberry and ripe blueberry. There is also dried plum, cooked cherry and candied fruit. Its 18 months in French oak gives a complex nose of toasted aromas, nuts, sweet spice and touches of dairy and vanilla. On the palate, the flavours follow on from the aromas, with sensations of dark fruit and dairy well balanced with the toast. It is finely balanced, with good body and a long finish.

"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 super long, beautiful finish. Tight and super polished."

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.

Joaquín Hidalgo, March 2020
