Very aromatic. Heavy vanilla and wonderfully meaty with earthy overtones. A long finish that pushes a plummy taste to the very end. Read more

The 1996 Montrose reveals outstanding potential. It boasts a saturated dark ruby/purple color, and aromas of new oak, jammy black currants, smoke, minerals, and new saddle leather. This multi-layered wine is rich and medium to full-bodied, with sweet... Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1996 Montrose 750ml

Full ruby-red. Deep aromas of smoky black cherry, black olive, minerals, cedar and game; I was reminded of a Montecristo No. 2. This really presents the full range of young Montrose aromas. Dense, sweet and layered; really reverberates on the palate.... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1996 Montrose 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Fashioned from a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the 2005 Montrose exhibits huge tannin, powerful floral, blueberry, and cassis flavors, and more weight as well as richness than last year. While surprisingly high in alcohol (13.2%) for a Montrose, that component is nicely balanced by the high tannin and decent acidity.
