2006 Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) A big, mouth filling wine, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, shows the personality of the vintage in its intense fruit. There is plenty of underlying structure in this deep, resonant Cabernet Sauvignon. Mint, flowers and sweet red berries are some of the nuances that are woven into the finish. This is far from an easygoing Napa Cabernet. Although delicious today, it should drink well for a number of years. Another year or so in bottle should help the elements come together even more fully.

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