No tannins to speak of, more fruity than funk. My wife loved it but she normally doesn't like reds.

This was flat on day 1 after a 2 hour decant. No Fruit on the nose or finish. A very different story on day 2, lush fruit a bit high on the alcohol mild tannins.

This is the first Montebello I've opened in a decade...Opened and decanted for 3 hours, was very surprised how soft the tannins were. Silky smooth with lush fruit. We were surprised the 2005 Santa Cruz Mountains that followed had much firmer tannins.

We opened two bottles of Ptera after an 07 Caymus. My sister inlaws comment was "Holy Shit this is amazing" and Caymus is usually her favorite cab.

this knocked the sox off a Goldeneye. A bit on the heavy side of Pinot but fantastically balanced.

Hot cola that's the best I can say about this one. Extensive bottle variation hope my last 2 are better.

It was not the fruit bomb I expected. I expected more from such a well known brand. Tasted sided by side a Force Majure Cab that blew the doors off the Caymus.

A very good bottle needs a hour decant. I will have to open another to give it a fair assessment as we opened this after a
2005 Grand Reve Reserve Syrah. Which is in my top 5 best ever!!!

Nice fruit lots of alcohol on the nose and back end. The tannins were soft and merged nicely with the oak. I am going to wait a year to open my next one.
