1980 Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
International Wine CellarGood dark red, healthier than the above. Plum, tobacco, chestnut and pungent oak spices on the nose. Rather suave and ripe in the mouth; not especially concentrated but supple and sweet. Drinking quite nicely today. Finishes with rather soft, dusty tannins.
