    (Montrose) Someone found the 1928 Montrose to ‘smell like Venice.’ It was earthy and full of hay, but also perfumed, reticent compared to the others. DC Don noted, ‘fonde duc, those Moroccan courtyards where they have the tanneries and hash.’ That must have been where he met that 90 year-old lol. Mike noted ‘cigar box,’ and its structure came out more with time, as did its fruit, revealing nice red cherry flavors along with great dust and length. The minerally, edgy finish had definition and true grit to it, but this was not the best bottle of this wine that I have ever had. It did continue to grow on me, however.

    (Montrose) will probably never show as well for me as it did at that magical vertical in Paris hosted by Bipin last September, but this bottle was still outstanding. It had a big, rich, intense nose full of sauce and dripping with oil, cassis, minerals and a high-grade antique wood. The palate was similar; it seemed as if all the 1928s had this old book and cedar flavor profile. Bipin said it was ‘as expected’

    (Montrose) left no doubt as to what vintage was wine of not only this session, but also the entire day. 'Wow' starts my note, 'this nose is bordering on liquid crack.' That is a presumption, I would like to add. I hope you get the idea. There was a divine chocolate, caramel and bakery character to the nose. So nutty, so thick, the 1928 also had a spine unlike any other wine on this day. The power of the '28 was staggering, shattering every wine of both sessions. Young and intense, nutty and tasty, long and viscous, the 1928 was the most beautiful girl in the most beautiful dress winning an award for best something. It got another 'wow' from me and was certainly wine of the day
