Robert M. Parker: 100 Punkte This is considered to be among the greatest vintages ever made in Montrose, right up with the 1929, 1945, 1947, 1959, 1961, 1989, 1990 and 2009. Harvest was October 15 to 17. The wine has really come on since I last tasted it, and it needs at least another 10 years of cellaring. The blend was 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. The wine is opaque black/blue, with an incredible nose of blueberry and blackberry liqueur, with hints of incense, licorice, and acacia flowers. Tannins are incredibly sweet and very present. The wine is full-bodied, even massive, with great purity, depth and a finish that goes on close to a minute. This is a 50- to 75-year-old wine that will repay handsomely those with good aging genes. Falstaff: 97 Punkte "Dunkles Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, dezente Randaufhellung, süße, bereits reif wirkende dunkle Frucht, ein Hauch von Zwetschken, deutliche Kräuterwürze, zarter Pfeffer, Nuancen von Kakao. Straff, zeigt eine gute Komplexität, reife Kirschenfrucht, gute eingebundene Tannine, frisch strukturiert, Herzkirschen auch im Nachhall, würziger Rückgeschmack. Braucht noch seine Zeit, verfügt bereits jetzt über eine tolle Länge, legt mit wachsender Flaschenreife immer weiter zu, großes Zukunftspotenzial."
