Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah Reserva

External Review by Palm Bay International:

Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2010 - 87 points, Wine Advocate/ ...Scents of cedar, spice box, violets, tobacco, and black currant lead to a savory, ripe, smooth-textured, nicely proportioned Cabernet. It is a very good value that should provide enjoyment for another 3-4 years.

Premium Wines Crafted With a Personal Touch The beautifully neat vineyards of MontGras, in the locality of Palmilla, Colchagua, VI Region of Chile, represent the concrete testimony of the development and the desire to do things right that have always characterized the Gras brothers, Hernán and Eduardo, along with partner Cristián Hartwig. Inspired by Hernán Gras, who has a brilliant winemaking trajectory in Canada, along with the entrepreneurial vision of his brother Eduardo and Hartwig's pragmatic businesses view, who comes from a winemaking family and who in addition has strong bonds with Colchagua, joined together to give to life to Viña MontGras in 1993, the first project of MontGras Properties. MontGras, that has always had state-of-the-art technology in all its processes, set out from its conception to be the winery with the best premium wine from Chile. It is no accident then, the great amount of international prizes that have recognized the professional work, the constant quality and the innovation of MontGras wines. In this, like corporative culture, people have been key. As Hernán Gras, Chairman of the Board says, "our philosophy has to do with producing quality Chilean wines at exceptional value, which reflect the specific terroir from where the grape come from. Although we count on the equipment and the technology, it is definitively our people that make the difference. To create a wine is a true art in which all the senses are used." Read less

Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2008 - 87 Points & Best Buy, Wine Enthusiast / Sweet, a bit candied and creamy on the nose, with marshmallow and other oak-driven aromas. The palate has a common, regular, comfortable feel as well as vanilla and boysenberry flavors. Dark and savory late; well made in the "value" class.
