1990 Ch. Montrose

A deep purple wine with pronounced aromas of damp earth, black plum, cedar, blackberries, licorice, dried herbs, warm brick with touch of coffee and vanilla. It is dry with medium alcohol and acidity. Full bodied with medium soft and fine-grained tannin. Quite intense flavours which keep changing among vegetal, bell pepper, black cherry, licorice and herbaceous. Long length with black plum finish. (97) Very complex nose and intense. Lovely length and big depth. Good fruit well developed. Wonderful.
