Château Montrose Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

A wine of unreal depth, it is armed with a powerful personality that glides across the mouth like liquid silk. A seductively sensual wine, it drowns the palate in waves of seamless dark fruits. One of the greatest Saint-Estephes I've ever tasted, this wine will give the 1990 Montrose a run for its money when both are at full maturity! Robert Parker

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.

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

So nice. Was disappointed with birth year cdp but Montrose not even close. Called it high quality Napa cab but so much better. Ripe red and black fruits with so many florals true mind fuck. Birth year cab here we go.
