(From 2010 Vintage) The 2010 is shaping up to be another beauty. Violets, freshly cut flowers, mint, spice box and plums all jump from the glass in this vivid, beautifully delineated cabernet.
(From 2009 Vintage) Montelena's 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate wraps around the palate with serious depth. Even with all of its intensity, the 2009 has a silkiness that makes it incredibly delicious at this early stage. Red berries, flowers, tobacco and sweet herbs all flesh out on the generous, radiant finish.

Decanter(From 1994 Vintage) Rating: 3/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. An intense nose of black cherries, leather and a touch of lanolin at the back. A mouthfilling yet smooth palate of spicy and well-integrated oak and dark black fruit with Morello cherries dominant.
