Community Tasting Note

99 Points

Tuesday, June 19, 2012 - Fill was at the base of the neck. Popped and poured. Dark garnet color with only minimal bricking at the rim. Classic St. Estephe nose of cedar, spice, and a hint of tobacco. Very expressive from the get-go. There was plenty of fruit left on the palate with currant predominant. Silky tannins remained to enhance the mouthfeel but oh what a finish. Long and persistant that left a smile on everyone's face. I have tasted the '59, '89. and '90 and this bottle was the best Montrose I have ever tasted. I had another bottle of the '55 approx. 2 years ago. Although that bottle was good, it paled in comparison to this one. One of the best Bdx I have tasted.
