2000 Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Napa image

(90-94 points) The impressive 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (8,600 cases) exhibits a dense ruby/purple color along with sweet aromas of black fruits intermixed with supple tannin, and broad, expansive flavors. The wine is full-bodied, sweet, and accessible. In spite of the troubles experienced in 2000, the Barretts were able to let their fruit hang on the vine until maturity was achieved. It is a seductive effort that will provide enjoyment between 2004-2018. The Estate Cabernet Sauvignon remains one of California's most remarkable Cabernets. I have been following it since the early seventies, and even the most difficult vintages are still drinking beautifully. The home vineyard is so consistent that even in vintages such as 1989 and 1998, this wine is far better than its competition. Wine Advocate #142 Aug 2002
