Château Montrose Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1996

A great wine for those who really love classic Bordeaux... this is developing along the lines of the classic 1989. A rich chocolaty nose mixed with roasted herbs. The palate is decadent... Rich, supple and rounded with complex black fruits, cigar-box and espresso coffee. Very long. This is a wonderful Montrose. eRobertParker.com (Neal Martin)

Ripe and big, unusual for the vintage, a slight hint of green, but overall a very pleasant surprise and lots of life ahead.

Classic nose of cedar, menthol, decaying leaves, classic St. estephe forest floor in action. Good palate a bit blocky and unexciting, and dilutes on the finish. Somewhat watery and not held together. Weird.

Birthday wine...leather, cigar, earth/mushroom, dried friut, medium alcohol, medium plus acid, tannins present but sooo smooth. Perfectly balanced..Delicious, paired with steak, but not enough tannin to cut thru steak, but regardless just absolutely delicious.
