Tasting Note:

Montrose is a contender for wine of the vintage, producing a monumental, powerful, yet reserved and classical wine that will outlive most people over the legal drinking age... The second wine is also a wonderful example and is one of the top St Estephes in its own right. Dame represents 36% of the total production, a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Merlot. It is a more feminine expression of this terroir, but is still quite a big wine. Liquid mineral nose of gravel, pencil lead and earth. On the palate there is bright floral fruit, blackberries, griotte cherry, sap and spice. Classical, reserved and very refined with ample tannic extract.
