A bit soupy and soft on the nose, with mulch, oak and tobacco along with dark-fruit aromas. This marks the second vintage of Intriga, a new Maipo Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from MontGras, and it’s full and chewy, with raspberry flavors and size. Shows a touch of syrupy thickness on the finish. Weighty and definitely ripe. Drink soon.
A first pass indicates that this Cab might be a little raisiny and flat, so it comes as a nice surprise to find out that the palate, while soft, has a poke or two of tannin and good flavors of cassis, prune and blackberry. It’s definitely a weighty, modern-styled wine that pours on the mocha and chocolate late in the game. Drink now.
