Winemaker's Notes

Dense color with brick hues. The rich nose displays scents of tobacco, leather, cedar, redcurrant, and cherry. The palate delivers notes of cocoa, mocha, ripened strawberry, and blackberry. This is a harmonious, fine, and elegant wine with a neat attack and beautiful fullness. It has a splendid structure, alsong with a long and round finish. The tannins are neat and defined.

Critical Acclaim

"Intense aromas of kirsch, currant and spice follow through to a full-bodied palate, with round, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. This is complex, changing on the nose and palate. Layered and structured."
96 Points

"The 1982 is nowhere near the quality of some of the Montroses made afterwards (1989, 1990, 1996, 2000, 2003, 2005, 2008), but it has aged better than expected having developed more complexity and richness than barrel samples suggested. Sweet kirsch, black currant, crushed rock, and floral notes are followed by a full-bodied, opulent, fleshy wine displaying no hard edges."
