JS 97 WS 93 Pts - According to James Suckling - This is a crazy red with dried chipotle and red chili pepper character with hints of dark fruits. Blueberry concentration. Full body, with fabulous fruit and an underlying firm tannin structure. Very silky tannins. This is the best carmenere-based red from Chile. 92% carmenere and 8% petit verdot.
According to Wine Spectator - A fleshy red, with plenty of spicy notes behind the rich, well-sculpted dark plum, cherry and mocha flavors. Dark chocolate and caramel accents emerge on the finish, presenting some savory accents. Carmenère and Petit Verdot.
According to Wine Advocate - The 2011 Purple Angel is Carmenere with some 8% Petit Verdot to try to balance the low acidity of the Carmenere: the Petit Verdot acting like the bones and the Carmenere would be the meat. It has abundant black fruit aromas. This 2011 is still very young with roasted coffee aromas from the barrels, notes of mint, chocolate and fine-grained tannins, moderate acidity and a powerful profile. This is still very young and shows a primary, fruit-driven personality. It should age well and develop more complexity, as I saw in the 2003 and 2007 vintages. Drink 2015-2020. (Abbreviated)
According to Wine Enthusiast - Intense berry and spice aromas convey a sense of purity that’s a bit generic. Although 2011 was a cool year by Chilean standards, this Carmenère-led blend is plump and voluminous in the mouth, but soft in the middle. Flavors of oaky cassis and herbs finish minty, green and chocolaty, with fresh acidity. 14.7% ABV. Rated 90+
