Still purple, dark and opaque. Intense, fruit forward nose. Notes of black currant, earth, leather and a little bell pepper. Fruit and softened tannins in a nice balance. Long finish. In a nice place, not sure this will get much better from here.

Murky brownish red. Amazing nose. Notes of cedar wood box, tobacco leaf, saddle leather and dark fruit. In the mouth mocha and coffee comes on with a nice sweetness. Great finish. This is everything you want in an aged cab. At peak.

An absolutely beautiful wine. Perfectly classic. Amazing supple fruit with lots of refinement and great acidity. Just a gorgeous wine, would never have guessed it’s almost 30 years. Wow.

このヴィンテージだとブランデー化してなくて、モンテリーナのいい所を多分に堪能できる!
