Funk at the outset. Then wet cardboard and mothballs. Hit stride about 45 minutes after pop. The least smack u in the face with fruit and tannin Montrose I've ever had.

One of our brown bag wines today. I usually get one right and I guessed 1985 left bank on this one! Delicious - thanks Gene!

A little past it’s prime, but still lovely. Red fruit and leather aromas. Light in body with red fruit, little cedar, tobacco with a nice finish. Revisited an hour after opening and it was finally starting to unfurl! More depth mid-palate.

Magnificent 30+ year old St Esteph, cedar and tobacco nose with a hint of graphite, silky smooth tannins, delicious fruit. Good for more years to come.

Beautiful drinking Montrose that had lovely spice & floral notes showing sweet red fruits, cassis, licorice, earth, leather, tobacco & rose petal. Still young & fresh that kept building in the glass.

Showing a lot of bell pepper pyrazines but still with lots of class.

胡椒、燻製、ほんのりと苺ジャムのような甘い香りも。ルビー色というか、まさに熟れた苺で作ったジャムのような色味で綺麗。
ボルドーの古酒は特徴が分かりやすいから楽しいな。にしても澱が凄かった。これでも少ない方らしいが....グラスの中を舞う澱は、夕焼け空の中を群れをなして飛ぶ鳥たちのようだった

The nose showed promise, but it never came out of its shell. Disappointing.
