Tasting Note:

Dame de Montrose has been one of a select group of outstanding second wines over the last decade, but the 2018 has raised the bar to a new level. This has real Grand Vin stature. Initially brooding, slowly, floral Cabernet and violet notes emerge along with bramble, blackberry and loganberry aromas. There is a lot of wine here. Deep and concentrated with waves of lavish yet tensile fruit - this is a really serious effort with large scale tannins that stain the palate with cassis, wood spice, liquorice and ferrous minerals. An outstanding second wine. 52% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.
