    (2000 Vintage) "The 2000 Montrose is a fine effort.. Gigantically sized, its saturated inky purple color is followed by a huge nose of crushed blackberries, creme de cassis, vanilla, hickory smoke, and minerals. Extremely full-bodied, powerful, dense, and chewy, this unreal Montrose should last for 30+ years. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2040."

    (1996 Vintage) Concentrated, Cassis, Mineral, Full-bodiedWine Advocate - 2nd Growth, St Estephe, Bordeaux, France- "Boasts aromas of new oak, jammy black currants, smoke, minerals, and new saddle leather. This multi-layered wine is rich and medium to full-bodied, with sweet tannin, a nicely-textured, concentrated mid-palate, and an impressively long finish."
