94 points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): "Thelonius Monk is a complex and innovative jazz musician, and the 2017 Monk is named after him. It's a pure Cinsault from Itata that has complexity but perhaps more volume than the other two in this 'music' series. The soils here are also red granite, and the grapes were selected from the higher part of the vineyard. It was produced with some 2,400 kilos of grapes that fermented uncrushed in raw concrete and matured in untoasted foudres until bottling in February 2018. The nose is complex and expressive, with tons of wild herbs, flowers and spices, and is really aromatic, captivating, complex and layered. The palate feels very complete, with edgy minerality and great depth. I tasted the 2018 from this vineyard when it was still in the middle of malolactic, and in that cooler year, it had less alcohol and a much more ethereal personality. This could be a new benchmark for Cinsault. 996 bottles produced. Drink: 2018-2023. (Oct 2018)"
