Montes Folly 2003

SKU 07457


The wine has a beautiful deep rubi red color. To the nose, with quiet glass, intense cassis and berries are feeling. When the glass is stirring we find notes that remember dry fruits, marmalade, vanilla very well integrated and dark mature fruits . In the mouth, the wine has sweet and soft tannins, and besides is equilibrated .gentle, rounded, robust, wide and dense with a very long lasting palate. The Montes Folly style is unbeatable. Montes Folly can be fully enjoyed right now but will improve over a long cellaring of up to 20 years.

Wine SpectatorDense, large-scale wine, with thick layers of blackberry, boysenberry, mocha and espresso flavors supported by lush, powerful tannins. Big, smoky, tarry finish. The oak is dominant now, but the stuffing is certainly here. One for the cellar. Syrah. Best from 2007 through 2011. 1,200 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastSuper dark; almost black like night. This is big-boned New World Syrah from the Apalta Vineyard, and the aromas of violets and cherry are appealing. Big in the mouth, with bracing acidity and a lot of spare tannin. Very chewy and ripe, with vivid fruit. You won't find other wines like this; it's one of a kind. Imported by T.G.I.C. Importers.
