2005Montes Folly Syrah

Shiraz-South America-Chile

Deep ruby. Powerful blackberry and cassis aromas are complicated by smoked meat, vanillin oak and candied licorice. Supple, sweet and broad, with luscious blackberry and cherry preserve flavors, velvety tannins and great depth.

Dense and layered, with lots of fig, black currant paste, mocha and black licorice flavors, all supported by muscular, but ripe and well-embedded structure. Long, dark finish has lots of power in reserve, but shows fine harmony already. The best-balanced vintage so far for this powerful Syrah. Drink now through 2013. 2,500 cases made.and the finish lasts for nearly a minute. It should be at its best from 2015 to 2030.

The 2005 Folly is 100% Syrah from the slopes of the Apalta Vineyard. It was aged for 18 months in 100% new French oak. Opaque purple, it has an expressive display of meat, game, cedar, sage, and blueberry. Structured for the long haul, it requires 5-7 years of additional cellaring. The fruit is ripe and sweet, the balance impeccable, and the finish lasts for nearly a minute. It should be at its best from 2015 to 2030.

Montess started vineyard operations in 1987. Previously, the Chilean wine market had been satisfied to produce a low-quality bulk wine for export and consumption. However, the vision of the Montes founding partners Aurelio Montes, Douglas Murray, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand was to produce world-class wines from Chile. They achieved this with their Alpha line of wines, and Montes was named Winemaker of the Year by Wine Spectator in 2002 and 2006.
