Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Wine Details

Wine Description

The 2006 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon has an enticing deep garnet red color in the glass. On the nose there are complex notes of blackberry tart, clove, cinnamon, and cocoa, along with dried black currants. The mouth has a soft supple entry, youthful crisp acidity, juicy plum and rich bright red fruit notes, all complemented by loads of fine grain tannin and an under-layer of dried black currant.

    Thick full bodied with heavy blackberry. I'd rate it higher than the 89 it's been getting.
