Dom Montrose Rose 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

91-94 Points, Vinous (Antonio Galloni): "Graphite, camphor, incense, tobacco, smoke and game burst from the glass in the 2013 Montrose. A dark, brooding wine, the 2013 boasts notable depth and tannin considering its mid-weight structure. The 2013 will require at least a few years to come together. Graphite, scorched earth, sage and rosemary are some of the notes that inform the intense finish. This has real density for the year. Based on two tastings so far, the 2013 Montrose is making a very strong case for itself as one of the wines of the vintage. The blend is 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot, with quite a bit more Cabernet than the more typical 55%. 04/14"

Very intense color. Pure fruity and a bit discreet nose yet aromatic. Smooth velvety aromatic and caressing on the palate. To picture my thought I would say that the wine is built more in a Saint-Julien style than a Saint-Estephe one. Good length without any square-shaped tannins. Jean-Marc Quarin - www.quarin.com

The Grand Vin represents 60% of production and is a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon 29% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot. It has a fragrant nose quite ripe and somehow akin to a Saint Julien than a Saint Estephe as there is little trace of that telltale earthiness at the moment (and it is not geosmin). There is a hint of green bell pepper in the background and that become exaggerated by aeration but it is an attractive component. I wonder how this will play out during

A firm Montrose with very silky tannins and a pretty acid fruit balance. Full body. Integrated and seamless for the vintage. Spicy undertones. A blend of 68% cabernet sauvignon 29% merlot and 3% petit verdot. James Suckling.
