Sep 10, 2007
Mary and I shared a glass of 1998 bordeaux and we loved it.
Aromas of minerals and black fruit and hints of earth even
some smoke in there. The Finish is excellent had very nice. It also has a very
nice texture to it. The color is Dark red and purple what a surprise. ;-)
We had a glass of this elegant wine with dinner. It was strong with a medium body and alot of aromas like berries raspberry and black berries. There a bit of sweetness to the long finish. The color is red and purple.
This wine was very nice on the
palate. It was smooth and had a great finish that never seemed to end. There
are aromas of berries both black and blue. In the flavor I got an almost
chocolate taste in it.
My wife took one sip and she smiled. I thought uh-oh is it
bad? I asked her what's wrong. She said very excitedly." Nothing's wrong dear. Nothing
at all dear." I could see in her eyes something was up. So I picked up my
glass and took a smell then a sip. When I was done I looked my wife and smiled.
She said "See nothing wrong is there?" I said nope it close to perfection. This
wine should be a millionaire it's so rich. It has a very berry and floral
aromas it's sweet and has a really good texture. In my book it's a 100.
This Glass is on me. This was some of the nicest words to come
from my girlfriends mouth all day. You see we had a fight earlier that day and
we both said some nasty things.
So we decided to go to dinner and see if we can talk this
out. We eat a nice dinner then enjoyed some wine over a nice conversation.
first glass wasn't much to brag about. But when it came time to order our
second glass she said "This ones on me." With a smile I said "ok".
wine she ordered was 2 glasses of 1994 Montrose Bordeaux Blend. This wine was
full of aromas of spices, jammy black fruit and earth. It was very balanced
with a medium body. This was a great make up wine.
The day I got this wine was a good one it was my birthday. We opened
it almost right away, so typical of my friends and I. We love wine. I wouldn't
say I know allot about it but I know I like. This wine had a cool coloring to
it purple and red. The scents I smelt where cedar, cassis licorice. It has a
I had a glass off this Dark red and purple wine the other
day. I would have to say this wine has an ok scent to it with black fruits,
mocha. To sweet for my liking but it was smooth. I would say that the body was
more full the medium.
