Tobin’s Review- 2 out of 5
Montes Purple Angel 2017 has a dark inky hue with earthy grass and stone aromas. The wine has flavors of plum, truffle and cream and has low tannins, slightly acidic and slightly dry. Overall I was very disappointed in this wine, as I found it overrated and not well-balanced.
