    March 9, 2019 - Well bred and very nice but somewhat tired. Doesn't feel like there's a ton of tread left on these tires.

    3/10/19, 7:36 AM - Did you decant it and give it some time to breathe? 95% of the time that older Montelena’s are described as tired in my experience they are in fact just asleep and they take sometimes several hours in the decanter to wake up, but when they do it is well worth the wait! If you have another that has been cellared well, try decanting in the afternoon for an evening dinner. Cheers!
