1998 Chateau Montlisse Saint-Emilion Grand Cru - A vibrant and brilliant dark red in color. Extremely aromatic, with some currant, dark dried fruit, licorice, cedar, and spice. Flavors include loads of dark fruit, licorice, minerals, herbs, cedar, and some spice. Very full in the mouth, with velvety tannins. Nice, complex finish. Could have used a little more time to let the tannins soften a bit, but it opened up nicely in the glass with some air time. A pretty interesting wine, and I think it was a relatively decent value in Bordeaux (mid $20 range, I think?).
