Montes Folly Syrah
So named because it was considered a folly to plant Syrah in Chile and even more so because it was on a very high slope. Now look whose laughing. One of the finest Syrahs on the planet. Montes Folly has a strong deep ruby red color. On the nose the wine is both very intense and elegant with lively blackberries, blueberries and plums with hints of chocolate aromas. The flavors are layered and dense, showing exceptional complexity and structure, while blackberry, boysenberry, mocha and expresso flavors are supported by velvety tannins followed by a very long finish. Grapes are hand-selected and sorted on a special selection table. Fermentation is triggered and completed by the grapes‚¬„¢ natural wild yeasts. The wine is aged for 18 months in 100% new French oak barrels. Highly recommended with red meats, rib eye steak, lamb, venison, baby back pork ribs, filet mignon with a rich balsamic glaze. 95 pts.
