Montes

Montes' Cherub is a seductive, elegant, dry wine, with an intense cherry-pink color. It is a well-made expression of the grape variety and terroir. On the nose and the palate, it demonstrates a distinctive Syrah character with spiciness and hints of strawberries, rose and orange peel. With good fruit concentration, it shows richness in texture across the palate that leads to a delightfully long finish. It has a strong backbone of acidity and a slight amount of tannin that gives the wine a defined structure.

Wine Spectator

Very vibrant, with racy cherry fruit and a well-defined stony edge that ripples through the lengthy finish. This has the intensity of a Tavel, with more exuberant-style fruit. Drink now.

Score: 88. —James Molesworth, February 28, 2009.

Wine Enthusiast

Ruby-pink in color, with sweet aromas of cotton candy but also cherry, raspberry and strawberry. This is a departure from previous vintages of Cherub, which were drier and paler in color. This is more wild and ripe, but it's nicely textured and full-bodied as rosés go. Very good for Chile, but we like our rosés a little more subtle and less sweet.

Score: 88. —Michael Schachner, May 01, 2009.
