Montgras Carmenere Reserva 2011
BOTTLE SIZE: 750ml
Deep violet red. Powerful aromas of spices, wild herbs, and toasty vanilla. 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.

RP Robert Parker, Dec 10, 2012

The 2011 Reserva Carmenere is blended with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon (usually the last variety to be picked). It is aged mostly in French and American oak, 50% new. It is an attractive Carmenere for the price, avoiding those obvious mocha scents on the nose and allowing juicy ripe black cherries and blueberry to prosper. The palate is medium-bodied with juicy ripe tannins, crisp acidity and a rounded, slightly peppery finish that complement the fruit intensity. This is a great example of Chilean Carmenere. Drink now-2015.

Wine Review International Wine Cellar May/June 2011 88 Points 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. ------------------------------------------ eRobertParker.com October 2010 89 Points Carmenere Reserva 2009 - 89 Points, eRobertParker.com------------------------------------------Savory, ripe, plump, with a palate of black fruit compote.
