Star Angel Aurelio's Selection 2007 Paso Robles Blend
Star Angel Aurelio's Selection 2007 Paso Robles Blend

Montes Star Angel

This Syrah based wine has a beautiful dark red/purple color. The up front nose is fruity and complex, condensed black berries, blueberries and black currant with a hint of well integrated French Oak. Dense, rich and chewey on the palate, with a light toasty spiciness that adds elegance and complexity. Many layers make this wine intriguing, with a deep and persistently velvety finish. 3000 cases.

Wine Spectator 92

"Marked by complex flavors built around rich mineral, graphite, dried berry, sage and cedar notes that are slow to unfold but offer wonderful depth, focus and length as they do. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre. Drink now through 2022."~JL.

Rhone Report 92
"Even better, with more depth, structure, and concentration, is the 2007 Star Angel by Montes Aurelio's Selection. A blend of 94% Syrah, 4% Grenache, and 2% Mourvedre that was aged for 16 months in French oak, it is deep purple and opaque in color and delivers top notch aromas of smoked black fruits, charred earth, roasted meat, and licorice that flows to a full-bodied, beautifully balanced wine. Benefiting from a decant, and holding up perfectly over the multiple days I had the bottle open, this outstanding Paso Robles blend has loads of fruit, but stays light and clean. It will benefit from short term cellaring, and drink well for upwards of a decade."

In 2002, Chief Winemaker Aurelio Montes ventured to Argentina to develop the Kaiken line, and in 2006 he continued his quest north, where he crafted wines in the iconic Napa Valley - NapaAngel.  In 2009 he added Paso Robles to his plate.
