Very pretty aromas of blackberries, with hints of Indian spices and milk chocolate. Full-bodied, with a solid core of ripe fruit and silky tannins. Very, very nice indeed. Montrose did very well. Best after 2008.

Perhaps not the best Montrose, but very good. Blackberry and dried cherry aromas have bark undertones. medium- to full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins. Slightly alcoholic on the medium finish. Needs time to come together. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. Best after 2000.

RP: The 2005 Montrose is an exceptionally tannic, broodingly backward offering displaying a dense ruby purple color along with a provocative perfume of crushed rocks, flowers, cassis, black raspberries, and blueberries. It continues to add weight and richness, good traits considering the substantial, forbiddingly high tannin levels and zesty acidity. If you are over the age of fifty, this backward, powerful wine will probably be more enjoyable to your descendants. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2040+

Dark in color, with an impressive nose of crushed currant, mineral and spices. Full-bodied, with seamless tannins and an aftertaste of spice, sweet tobacco and berry. The second wine of Montrose. Best after 2011. JS
