Montgras Quatro 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Das sonnige Klima von Chile lässt die Trauben ausreifen! Entsprechend präsentiert sich diese Cuvée: gehaltvoll, mächtig, mit reifen, samtigen Gerbstoffen und einer zugänglichen, verführerischen Struktur, die anhält. Nur von Hand gelesene Trauben werden für die Kelterung des Quatro verwendet. Der Ausbau im kleinen Eichenfass verleiht dieser Assemblage eine zusätzliche Note, die sich von der Nase bis ins lange anhaltende Finale durchzieht. Es ist eine spannende Cuvée, die viel Stoff, Körper und Schmelz aufweist.

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

Sawdust on the nose with a bit of dark berries; dark berries continue on the palate with a sour cherry finish. (Had just a taste at a tasting)

    Quatro 2011 is deep crimson red, shading to purple. Flavorful, firm and powerful with a good balance between sweetness and acidity. This full-bodied wine tastes of juicy black fruit, roasted coffee, vanilla; very complex with a long finish.

    Deep ruby red with purple notes. Well focused aromas on a core of rich supple currant, black cherry fruit and nice floral notes framed by nicely combined vanilla and toast from the oak aging. Flavors are ripe and concentrated with layers of cherry, curran

    Love, love, love this wine. This wine is andldquo;a hit your palate, donandrsquo;t put the glass downandrdquo; good. Chilean red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Malbec (20%), Carmenere (15%), Syrah (15%). Fermented in stainless steel tanks and then in French oak barrels for 11 months. The nose reminds me of a fresh cup of French vanilla coffee, with leather and dark cherry notes. The palate is full bodied with a good balance of both fruit and oak. More of a sugar and spice and with this wine would make anything nice. I think I will buy a bottle tonight.

    The 2009 Quatro is composed of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Malbec, 15% Carmenere, and 15% Syrah aged for 11 months in 30% new French and American oak. Toasty oak, hints of chocolate and mocha, spice box, cherry cola, and assorted black and blue fruits are followed by a ripe, savory, nicely proportioned Blend that will benefit from another 1andndash;2 years of cellaring. It will provide optimum drinking from 2013 to 2021.

    Sweet and smoky on the nose, with prune, hickory and spice aromas that come together well. The palate on this four-grape blend is saturated and meaty, while the flavors of blackberry, coffee and dark plum are lush and finish with light toast and spice. Always one of Chileandrsquo;s best values; an over-performer year after year.

    Montgras stands out as one of Chile’s most consistent producers, coming out with great value reds almost every vintage. This wine is their bordeaux-style blend and it shows true character and style. It’s a 90-point Best Buy in Wine Enthusiast Magazine where they said “One of the best values in Chilean wine is Quatro, a lusty blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Carmenere and Syrah. The nose is deep and roasted, with aromas of bacon, vanilla, pastry and black fruit. Lush and full in the mouth, with intense blackberry and cassis flavors. A titan at a great price, and ageable over the short term. Drink now through 2013.”

    <p>This deep ruby wine offers a nose of cherries, black currant, capcisum peppers and leather, with vanilla and coffee notes. The full-bodied fruit and oak flavors of the palate lead to a long lasting finish. Recommended to pair with casseroles, red meats, or cheeses.</p>
