(Barrel tasting) Racy structure. Lots of violets, currants and light tar. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a silky finish. Very fine indeed. An elegant Montrose.

...a terrific 1989 that not only surpasses his excellent 1986 and delicious 1982, but is, in his opinion, the best since the colossal - still not ready for prime time drinking - 1970. The massive, rich 1989 has a bouquet that smells like raspberry jam intertwined with liquid stones. In the mouth, it is full-bodied, superbly executed, and finishes with a low acid, satiny texture, as well as a dizzying level of alcohol... will have to be drunk over the next twenty years... there has not been a Montrose this concentrated since 1970... Anticipated maturity: 1993-2010.

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 color. Aromas of blackberry, toasted oak, spice and tobacco. Loads of plum. Medium- to full-bodied, with very integrated and refined tannins. Long. This really builds on the palate. This is better than the 2000 and 1990. Only time will tell if it's better than the 1989. Best after 2011. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
