Powerful yet still retaining a sense of restrained style, this wine is packed with ripe plum and sweet berry fruit flavors, laced with firm, dusty tannins. Acidity filters through the dense texture to give great freshness. R.V. Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Montrose 6000ml

This has a density that sets it apart, with a pleasantly firm edge to the plum, black cherry and currant fruit, all wrapped with notes of iron, tobacco and savory herb. The long, rock-solid finish is still a bit tight, but it should meld nicely... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Montrose 750ml

An undeniably great Montrose, after some time in wood, the 2008 should achieve the heights of the 2003, 1990, and 1989. Stylistically different from those wines, the 2008 harvest took place between September 29 and October 15, and yields were a modes... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Legendary Classified Bordeaux from the commune of St. Estephe. 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc aged in 60% new barrels for up to 18 months. Robert Parkers scored it 95 points saying "One of the superstars of the vintage, this classic Montrose is not as showy or opulent as the 2010, 2009 or 2003, but it offers a dense purple color followed by gorgeously sweet black raspberry and black currant fruit intermixed with loamy, earthy, forest floor notes, a floral component and a long, full-bodied finish. The 2008 was fashioned from yields of 44 hectoliters per hectare which is slightly less than the 2010's 45 hectoliters per hectare. Forget it for 5-8 years and drink it over the following 20+."
