I celebrated another year on this planet earlier this week, always glad when I am continuing to count days gone by! Some fun stuff in the works for tonight.

Red/Black currant, plum skin, Kirsch, moist soil and mineral flavor traits.

Montrose is one of the most famous Chateaux in the region, and one of the fifteen Second Growths in the original Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855. Montrose’s second wine, La Dame de Montrose, is consistently excellent value. The 2014 La Dame de Montrose presents a distinctly savory profile. Sweet red cherries, flowers, orange peel, herbs and white pepper give the 2014 much of its aromatic lift. Beautifully layered to match its gracious, understated personality, the 2014 impresses with its striking balance and laid-back sense of power. All the elements meld together in a wine of total grace. This is a very sexy second wine from Montrose. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Feb 2017)

Thursday night and I have pulled the trigger on the 2014 La Dame de Montrose Staint-Estèph. 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. I've been wanting to try this for awhile and today I pulled the trigger on it and I am sooooo glad I did. What a beautiful 2nd wine from Château Montrose which hear taken me back to the 1st Bordeaux I ever tasted and set me on my wine journey.

The nose has notes of black cherry, strawberry, plum, black currant, herbal notes, beautiful purple florals, tar, sweet licorice, oak and graphite.

On the palate is dense dark fruit, black cherry, raspberry, blueberry, green bell pepper, black currants and good minerality.

This wine is medium.to full bodied with medium + acidity leaning more to the + side and medium + grippy tannins that coat the whole mouth and leads you right into a long strong enjoyable finish. I'm starting my Memorial Day weekend off right and want you all to have a wonderful holiday weekend. PLEASE be SAFE! Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Classic elegance. Good vintage from a second growth that rivals any firsts.

Great. Rich but soft. Bought at Katsumi-shokai for ¥5,112.

Second-rate fruit is disappointing, low-concentration and no complexity.

Haven’t posted in a while, but Chris turned me on to this and it was an excellent recommendation. This was really very good, decanted around 6 hours, still very young and delicious but well balanced and really traditional. Best outcome, I got approval to buy more!

Tight. After about an hour it opened up a little but still very closed. Not that surprising at a 14, but not approachable young
