Wonderful wine. Truffle mushroom and leather on the nose. Velvety tannins and layers of tobacco and leather going on and on. Vintage 2004. A winner

Such a BIG surprise!!! Astonishing balance where perfectly ripe cassis fruit, sweet and grainy tannins and juicy acidity have melded into complete, liquid sex. A great showing!!!

Mature and very pleasant, it has way time to get even better, complex, fruity light notes with tobacco, olives and oaky notes - keep on evolving a great way

Amazing proof that vintages do not matter sometimes. Elegant, persistent, yet solid as a rock. The nose was like a beautiful perfume, elegant, but complete with good hang time. Graphite, currants, fresh cut flowers, and fall leaves rise from the glass and caress the palate. Medium to firm tannins are starting to mellow. #montrose #stestephe #bordeaux

I bought 3 cases on closeout a couple of years ago for the list. If course, the last bottle is turns out to be the best.

Was looking forward to this 2004 Montrose. Unfortunately, slightly corked but still very drinkable. Hope the rest of them fare better!
