    (Montrose) was a pleasant surprise with its pungent nose and that anise and indoor cleaner combo again. It was slaty with lots of minerals and what I call indoor aromas, but it was mild beyond that and overall. You really had to inhale deeply to get something out of it, so it wouldn't be a wine to bring over to Bill Clinton's house for dinner. The pleasant surprise really occurred on the palate, which was quite good. Spicy and rusty, the 1975 was masochistically tasty with its baby got backside of cedar and minerals and taste (flash) of chocolate. The '86, '82 and '75 seemed very related, and I loved the '75's vigor and iron-fisted personality on the palate. The wine could be a long-term sleeper but is by no means a fruit bomb, not even in any wine lover's deepest, darkest fantasy. James noted how 'the seventies were a tough time, but this showed better than I expected. I enjoyed it'
