Vina Montgras Carmenere Reserva Colchagua Valley 2017

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

Viña MontGras, in Chile’s Colchagua Valley, was established in 1992 by brothers Hernán and Eduardo Gras, together with their partner Cristián Hartwig. The fruit of a mission to produce estate-grown wines of exceptional quality and originality, the MontGras estate today encompasses over 200 hectares planted to vine in the heart of Chile’s wine-producing region. Since the first harvest in the early 1990s, MontGras wines have earned over 200 medals and awards worldwide, garnering international critical acclaim. Santiago Margozzini serves as head winemaker. Production Area Chile’s Colchagua Valley, located between the Coastal Range and the Andes. Grape Varieties 100% Carmenère Vinification Grapes are hand-harvested in early May. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. After the maceration period, 80% of the wine is aged for five months in French and American (70/30) oak barrels. Color Deep violet red Bouquet Powerful aromas of spices, wild herbs, and toasty vanilla Taste Ripe black and red fruit, full of soft tannins, give this wine a big structure with a creamy and round texture. Elegant and toasty notes from the ageing oak allow for a charming and lingering finish. Alcohol 14.3% Serving Suggestions Best served with spicy entrées, steak, pork sliders, and hard cheeses.

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.

Intensives, dunkles Purpurrot. In der Nase herrliche Aromatik von schwarzen Johannisbeeren und reifen Zwetschgen ergänzt mit Noten von Kaffee und dunkler Schokolade. Konzentriert, rund und vollmundig am Gaumen mit angenehmer Tanninstruktur.

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.

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.

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.

A rich and distinctive red, the Carmenère grape is to Chile what Malbec is to Argentina, however, the character of Carmenère is more supple and smooth. The profile is berries, olives and tobacco. Consulting oenologist Paul Hobbs ages this Reserva 7 months in French and American oak barrels for added depth and complexity. A perpetual Best Buy from Wine Enthusiast Magazine. It's a great wine to match up with rich, lively foods.
