James Suckling Review
Incredibly complex with sweet-tobacco, iron, blackberry, black-olive and dried-strawberry aromas. Full body, ultra-refined tannins and a rich finish. Harvested before the rains. Juicy tannins. Very structured and big style, but shows balance. Drink or hold.
Wine Spectator Review
Very plush, with explosively rich and intense flavors of dark cherry, Christmas pudding and blackberry that are filled with Asian spice notes. Dark chocolate and white pepper accents linger on the luscious finish. Syrah. Drink now through 2025.
Wine Tasting Notes
Montes Folly has a strong deep ruby red color. In the nose, the wine is both very intense and elegant with lively blackberries, blueberries and plums with hints of chocolate aromas. On the palate, the wine is layered and dense, showing exceptional complexity and structure, while blackberry, boysenberry, mocha and espresso flavors are supported by velvety and powerful tannins followed by a very long finish.
