Tasting Notes

"The 2013 Montrose has an understated, lilting bouquet with blackberry and briary scents and dried rose petals, gaining more intensity as it opens over 2-3 minutes in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. It shows good weight in the mouth, quite linear and masculine (typical for Montrose) but there is respectable detail and mineralité coming through on the satisfying finish. Not a top tier Montrose, but then again, why would it be in this difficult vintage. It will still give pleasure over the next 12-15 years." - Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (10/28/2016, Issue 227), Ratings: 90, Drink: 2017-2030

"This is a firm wine although with superb fruit. It is structured and dense, dark with tarry tannins as well as juicy fruitiness. It is a powerful wine that certainly has the freshness of the year while also having dark, dense tannins. Drink from 2025." - Roger Voss, The Wine Enthusiast (3/2016), Ratings: 89

"No Cabernet Franc was included in the final blend of the 2013 Montrose, which is composed of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Merlot. It is a dark ruby-hued, pleasant, charming, fruit-forward, but superficial effort. There is an absence of tannic strength, and the acidity seems adequate and unobtrusive. This is a pleasant, straightforward, fluid Montrose to drink in its first 7-10 years of life. The 2013 harvest at Montrose was very early because of the pressure from high humidity and the fear of rot." - Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate (8/27/2014, Issue 214),  Rating: 87-89, Drink: 2014-2024
