Another so-so St.-Estephe from the 1983 vintage, Montrose produced a wine that remains youthful and tannic, but there is little underlying fat, fruit, or charm. It may be built to last another 10-20 years, but it will undoubtedly drop what little fruit it has and become increasingly astringent. I would drink it up before it becomes more attenuated. Last tasted, 2/93. *** Not nearly as big or as tannic as one might expect, the 1983 Montrose has adequate tannin, a decent ruby color, a spicy, plummy nose, medium body, and an astringent finish. Anticipated maturity: Now-2000. Last tasted, 11/88.
