Stellar nose. Smoke, leather, truffle, bbq, super mineral, mint, forest floor, cassis, mineral, so clean, loads of cedar and pine, palate is even a bit young. So juicy and complex. Mineral and fresh. Big tannic spine. Complex and long. Can still use some age. Gorgeous now.

02 Chateau Montrose is quite a lovely wine. I often think of Montrose as having feminine qualities - a beautiful, floral, elegant wine. This 2002 has perfume/flowers on the nose. The medium bodied wine finishes with gravel/mineral. Incredibly well balanced. Decanted for 4 hours

Fab 02 Estephe @ £61 that hits above the vintage averages 👍 but at its peak fruit it feels 🤔

🍇 62% Cab S, 32% Mer, 4% Cab F, and 2% Pet V

🍷 Opaque ruby

👃 Soggy earth, minerals, leaves & cedar/oak smoke through mushed black berries, & plum w/ a herby leather & touch farmyard undertone

👄 Med silky earthy liquorice mocha dark stewed plump slight sweet berries w/ slight dry oak tannin

🎯 Med earthy mocha liquorice dark berry slight unbalanced smack

Drinking nicely with lead pencil nose. Remnants of austere green pepper lurk beneath black currant, blackberry, charcoal, dusty cocoa, ripe acidity plum finish.
