Tasting Notes Montrose 1998

90

A classic effort, the 1998 Montrose exhibits a dense purple color in addition to a sweet nose of jammy cassis, licorice, earth, and smoke. It is a powerful and full-bodied wine with well-integrated tannin. Given Montrose's tendency to shut down, it is performing better out of bottle than I expected. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2030.

Deep purple colour. At first the nose was very tight, dusty black fruits and soot, turning more into dried prunes with aeration. The palate is very tannic as expected though I fear too tannic for the amount of fruit on the mid-palate. Quite chocolaty, that note becoming stronger with time in the glass. The finish is very masculine, dry and austere which is concerning. Will the tannins soften after the fruit has dried out? It needs another 5 to 8 years before entering any kind of drinking plateau. Tasted October 2003.
