Vintage Tastings

    Paris a la Mode with Dr. Desai, 9/19/2005 93 points

    (Montrose) had an exciting nose, especially since it was a 1948, a vintage of which I had recently tasted a disappointing Haut Brion. It was one of those things that make you go 'mmmmm.' There were great cedar, nut and caramel aromas balanced by smoky, plummy and vanilla ice creamy fruit. The palate was mature yet sturdy, long with nice grip. Its carob and cedar flavors were tasty in that mature way, and there were some teabag and leather flavors as well, but its overall personality was chalky. Wolfgang loved the wine's opulence, and Josh said, 'this is the real story (of the flight) given it is an off vintage.' Ed did not feel '48 was that 'off' a vintage. The palate was a step behind the nose, for sure, but the nose stayed fabulous, with what poker fans would call great 'nuts'
