Montgras-Quatro Colchagua Valley Red Blend Chile Central Valley 2008
MontGras Quatro Deep ruby red with violet notes. Ripe black fruit such as dry plums and figs, berries, blueberries, black plums and cassis. Then some chocolate and black pepper appears. All this elegance, melted with the barrel ageing gives us those notes of vanilla and toast that we can feel in the nose, but more at the end of mouth. An elegant but powerful wine.
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)
Very smooth. Tasty.
Rich dense fruit with hints of tobacco. Spicy full bodied wine. Nice smooth finish. A good buy for the price.
God og fyldig. Til kød - ost.
This wine tip toes in your mouth and goes great with almost every single meal. It's very approachable and elegant at the same time, which it's so hard to find these days. Love it!
External Reviews for Montgras-Quatro Colchagua Valley Red Blend Chile Central Valley
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.”
Diese gekonnte Assemblage ist eine wahre Freude! Eine sehr intensive, ausdrucksstarke, leckere Aromatik lässt uns an reife Früchte, feine Gewürze und Tabak denken. Im Gaumen vereinen sich die samtigen, reifen Gerbstoffe mit der tiefgründigen Fruchtstruktur zu einer kompakten, dichten Einheit. Ein überzeugender Sinneseindruck von intensiver Aromatik und der ausgewogene, gehaltvolle Körper setzen beim Quatro im Finale das berühmte Tüpfelchen auf das «i».
