External Reviews for Vina Montgras Carmenere Reserva Colchagua Valley
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.
Carmenere Reserva 2008 - Massachusetts' Beverage Business/ Exiled from Bordeaux, and for a long time mistaken for merlot in Chile, carmenere must be grown in light, warm soil. Contains 10 percent Cabernet Sauvignon. Five months in oak. A pleasant, relatively light, cabernet-style wine.
Reserva Carmenere 2009 - 87 Points & Best Buy, Wine Enthusiast/ On the nose it's sweet, smooth and seductive... with... blackberry and boysenberry fruit.
Carmenere Reserva 2009 - 89 Points, eRobertParker.com/ Savory, ripe, plump, with a palate of black fruit compote. Sweet, lengthy, and long.
Carmenere Reserva - A Best Value, Parker's Wine Bargains/ The Carmenere Reserva has an expressive bouquet of spice box, black raspberry, and black cherry; lots of succulent blue and black fruits on the palate; a friendly personality; and a finish with no hard edges.
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.
/ Delicious Carmenere. Supple and full bodied with fairly intense fruitiness (black currant, plum), with overtones of cedar, toast, and cooked meat. Great Value.
<p>This well-rounded deep violet red wine is produced in Colchagua Valley of Chile. With ripe, soft tannins, this wine has with great structure and freshness.</p>
