Vina Montgras Carmenere Reserva Colchagua Valley 2011

Member Review by aronowm2:

Light bodied and not very viscous for a Carmenere. Still a good bottle of wine that isn't overly Chilean. Good gateway wine for American wine drinkers.

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

Carmenere Reserva 2010 - 88 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Shines with a nice purple lustre then opens with big blackberry and spiced plum flavors that are earthy and wild. The palate is round, ripe and feels good, and the flavors are centered on herbal blackberry and toast. Very good for the price range.

Carmenere Reserva 2009 - 89 Points, eRobertParker.com/ Savory, ripe, plump, with a palate of black fruit compote. Sweet, lengthy, and long.

Carmenere Reserva 2010 - 88 points, International Wine Cellar/ Dark violet. Blackberry and musky spices on the nose. Juicy, focused and very fruity, almost jammy, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors with a spicy underpinning. Finishes with solid bite, showing good clarity and gentle spiciness.

Deep purple with powerful spicy aromas mingled withmint and wild herbs. On the palate, soft and round tannins combine with a subtle vanilla and toasty flavors.

/ Delicious Carmenere. Supple and full bodied with fairly intense fruitiness (black currant, plum), with overtones of cedar, toast, and cooked meat. Great Value.

Carmenere Reserva 2010 - 86 points, Wine Spectator Online/ Friendly with crushed cherry pie and blackberry fruit layered with judicious toast and followed by a lively finish.

Ninquen 2009 - 90 points, Wine Enthusiast/ This Syrah-Cab blend is an oaky specimen with no shortage of vanilla, cream and sawdust on the nose. In the mouth, it’s quite rich, almost to the point of being syrupy. Flavors of blackberry, toast, vanilla and popcorn announce even more generous oak, while the finish is warm in feel, with baked fruit, mint and vanilla flavors.
