(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+

An explosively rich, exotic, fruity Montrose, the 1995 displays even more fat and extract than the 1996. There is less Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1995 blend, resulting in a fuller-bodied, more accessible and friendlier style. The wine exhibits an opaque black/ruby/purple color, as well as a nose of black fruits, vanillin, and licorice. Powerful yet surprisingly accessible (the tannin is velvety and the acidity low), this terrific example of Montrose should be drinkable at a young age. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2028.

Incredible blackberry, licorice and vanilla character, with lovely and complex aromas. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and a long finish. Goes on and on and on. Best since the amazing 1996 Montrose. Best after 2010.
