Chateau Montrose 2005
I’d been trying to resist opening this for a while, but ‘twas futile. Enlightening to try alongside some awesome Australian Cabernet.
Cassis, cedar, and a hint of creamy vanilla, before the lightness falls past the event horizon into a black hole of graphite and petrichor. Medium bodied, formidable and still mostly impenetrable, blackcurrants and blackberries give way to an elixir of mocha richness with earthen macchiato bitterness, atop assertive, cascading tannins.
