My notes on a 1979 Chateau Montrose, a second growth Saint-Estephe written in 1989.
Lots of cedar and cigars in the nose. Dark color with no browning on the edges. Strong flavors of cherries, cedar and graphite. Long finish with lots of fruit. Strong tannins. Dinner was a lamb stew. Shared with Steve M.
The wine may have been memorable, but apparently Steve M. wasn't because I have no idea who he is these twenty five years later. Perhaps another bottle of Montrose would help me remember. ☺
