Very drinkable - smooth - can't imagine what it would be like with recommended further aging..
External Reviews for Montgras Antu Ninquen Syrah Colchagua Valley
Wine Advocate ReviewThe Antu Ninquen wines come from a single vineyard atop the plateau of Ninquen Mountain in the Colchagua Valley. The well-known Paul Hobbs serves as a consultant to the project. The 2005 Antu Ninquen Syrah has 12% Cabernet Sauvignon added to the blend. The wine was aged for 18 months in French and American oak before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Purple-colored, the wine offers a spicy perfume of pepper, leather, earth, and blackberry. Firmly structured, this full-bodied wine has good flavors and balance but will require several years in the bottle to fully express itself.Wine Tasting NotesOpulent, rich purple. Very spicy; notes of black and white pepper mingle with leather, clove and ripe black fruit supported by oak. Full-bodied, harmonious and expressive. Mellow tannins and a structured mid-palate. Intense fruit leading to a long finish.
