Cedar and tobacco leaf on the front end, this is all about juicy, bright, crisp cassis. There is suitable spice and a hint of green olive with soft tannins and even more fruit on the back end. This should drink well with just one to three years of age.

2010 La Dame de Montrose  (St. Estèphe) 91

Tight at the moment, a little work is needed to wake the wine and its crushed stone, herbs and black fruit scents. The tannic wine demands at least a few years in the cellar before the cassis, oak and blackberries come together. This was not showing at its potential best when tasted, with time, this could be a much better wine. As it sells for a fair price, for savvy consumers that like the style, as it sells for a fair price, it's well worth taking a chance on.
