Wine Spectator 91 points - The dark cassis and kirsch notes weave through fine layers of baking spice, licorice and mesquite. Ambitious, yet balanced by a combination fine tannins and juicy acidity that keeps the dark finish fresh. Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2016.—N.W. (Jan 30 2013)

Since the first harvest in the early 1990s, MontGras wines have earned over 200 medals and awards worldwide, garnering international critical acclaim. Santiago Margozzini is the estate’s chief winemaker, with renowned California winemaker Paul Hobbs serving as consultant.
