Montgras Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Sauvignon Colchagua 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

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. This wine is brilliant red with hints of bay leaf, herbs and spicy blackcurrants on the nose, typically Chilean in style. The palate offers blackcurrant, cassis and blackberry, soft tannins with lingering spicy fruit and a firm finish.

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

Other Reds and Red Blends/ Medium to full bodied with black currant, toast, and black cherry; spicey finish. Hearty beef stews.

Quatro 2009 - 90 points, Wine Enthusiast/ 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 toast and spice. Always one of Chile’s best values; an overperformeryear after year.

Quatro 2008 - Massachusetts' Beverage Business/ Blend of four: Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Malbec, and Syrah. The proportions will vary with the vintage. Ripe black fruit with spice. Interesting interplay of varietals. Good company for well-seasoned food.

Quatro - A Best Value, Parker's Wine Bargains/ A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Carmenere, and Syrah, Quatro has a complex bouquet of cedar, spice box, black currant, blackberry, and a hint of blueberry in the background. This is followed by a layered wine with good depth and concentration with enough structure to evolve.

Quatro 2007 - 5 Stars, Restaurant Wine/ Amazing value! Quatro is a four-varietal blend, and a terrific value. It is fleshy and extremely well-balanced, with full body, rich flavors, and a long, harmonious finish. It tastes of black licorice, black currant, toast and spicy oak.

Quatro 2007 - 89+ Points, eRobertParker.com/ The 2007 Quatro is a blend of 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Malbec, 25% Carmenere and 15% Syrah. Purple-colored, it has a complex bouquet of cedar spice box, black currant, blackberry and a hint of blueberry in the background. This is followed by a layered wine with good depth and concentration with enough structure to evolved for 1-2 years. Drink this excellent value from 2009 to 2015.

/ Priced just above the Best Buy level, Quatro is still a great value. MontGras brings Cabernet, Malbec, Carmenere and Syrah together in a well-meshed way. The wine is big and full of blackberry fruit. It has some woody characteristics, but mostly it's harmonious as it builds to a nice finish of mocha and fine tannins.
