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, 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.

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.

Inky ruby. Fresh blackberry, raspberry, incense and rose on the slightly reduced nose. Firm and refreshingly brisk, offering fresh red and dark berry flavors and a kick of peppery spice. Very young but shows good, energetic fruitiness. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and good persistence.

Plump and velvety, this fruity red offers plum, blackberry and tangerine flavors, accented with vanilla and licorice. Not muscular, but generous. Drink now through 2012.A very fresh, forward style, with tasty grape and blackberry fruit laced with roasted vanilla and cocoa notes. Drink now.

On the nose itrsquo;s sweet, smooth and seductive, but thatrsquo;s where the sweet nothings end. The palate is super concentrated and intense, with almost overpowering blackberry and boysenberry fruit. A high-octane red if there ever was one, and thatrsquo;s all hammered home on the warm, menthol-laden finish.
