Christine Havens Delectable Pro

Beautifully evolved nose of leather, mulberry, brambly red berries, clove and dried mint. Medium-bodied with a regal countenance—there is still tons of structure, with mouth-coating fine grain tannin in abundance. Truly, this wine could go on and on and on in the cellar. The 1989 Château Montrose is not terribly fruit-driven, rather it's interior space is occupied by notes of dusty, clayey soil, cedar, black tea and spice. That wonderful impression of clove is on the finish, too.

This one needs a ridiculous amount of time, it is almost primary for a 1989. See you in 25 years

Wow! Just beautiful and still a baby. Not nearly the "horse sweat" brett you get from the 1990.
