Dark crimson. A little big jagged and awkward with lots of acid in evidence. Sweet start, polished, not integrated but pretty cocky and self assured. Pretty dry tannins. Will it settle down? I am giving it the benefit of the doubt.

The blackpurple-colored 1999 Montrose offers up notes of pure black fruits intermixed with minerals, smoke, and earth. It is extremely concentrated, surprisingly powerful and dense, with moderate tannin. Its size, strength, and medium to full-bodied personality are atypical for the vintage.
