K&L Notes

96 points Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 2018 Montrose delivers on the promise that it showed from barrel. I gave this a three-hour decant before broaching, since Montrose is always backward, albeit far less ferociously than even just a decade ago. It offers copious blackberry and blueberry scents on the nose, plus pressed violets and a light estuarine scent that becomes accentuated with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a silky-smooth texture. Finely chiseled tannins frame multilayered black fruit infused with crushed stone, and it has retained that subtle graphite element that lends it a Pauillac-like personality, though less so than out of barrel. This is a beautifully defined Montrose with entrancing symmetry, and it should drink earlier than other recent vintages thanks to a little more pliancy." (3/2021)

    Concentrated, minty aromas, dense and intense in the mouth. Always a masculine style, this wine is a classic Montrose. A good cellar candidate. A blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. A quite high 14.5% alcohol level.

    Wow, this is about as intense a young Ch. Montrose as I have ever tasted. Super bright, strong and direct, spicy red fruits and minerals. Classic as they come! Needs serious time in the cellar. 2 Stars! Ralph Sands

    This was one of my early wines of the vintage, starting with brilliant aromas that are all too easy to get lost in. On the palate there is waves of cassis and blackberry, with a layered and seamless texture, resounding acidity, and fine, grippy tannins. The depth in 2018 Montrose is stunning and it is extremely long. It is rare for a wine to offer this much at such an early stage. It is hard to go wrong with any of the elite St-Estephes in 2018, but for the complexity of the wine, I'm putting my vote in for Montrose. Another great addition to an amazing portfolio.
