From the bottle:
"Four outstanding grape varieties compose this singular and distinctive red wine. Crafted with selected handpicked grapes, Quatro is the outcome of a judicious 10 months oak aged blend that shows the optimum balance between ripe fruit and velvety smooth tannins as well as the true characteristic of this particular vintage year. It's an ideal companion for hearty pasta dishes, flavorful fish entrees and red meats.The 2011 Montgras Quatro begins with very nice, strong aromas of blackberry, black currant, leather, vanilla and menthol. Tasting the wine reveals a wonderful, velvety, silky and even a bit chewy texture. This is a smooth, medium-to-full-bodied wine featuring lots of savory dark fruit and spice. The finish is dry with good length and ends with long lasting coffee notes. Very nice!
