Montrose 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"This shows a lovely finish with ultra-fine tannins and pretty fruit. Refined and long. Plenty of ripe and clean fruit. Tangy and fresh. Shows careful viticulture and winemaking...93-94" JS 4/13 "The inky/purple-colored 2012 offers up scents of white chocolate, creme de cassis, acacia flowers, crushed rocks and forest floor. The tannins are surprisingly soft as the pH is about 3.7, which is slightly higher than the 2010's 3.6. This dense, full-bodied wine is still somewhat monolithic, but it is loaded with concentration and power as well as a long finish. While not totally formed, all the component parts are present...94-96" WE 4/13

This is a big powerful fruity wine that has restraint from its dense tannins. It s foursquare chunky in character already balanced the tannins merging with the acidity. There is great aging potential. Wine Enthusiast.
