2012 Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Napa

Share on Facebook

(93 points) From bottle a solid 93. Surprisingly lush and charming for a young Montelena, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate has a deep ruby/purple color, with earthy, black cherry and blackcurrants. The wine has very ripe tannins, and is medium to full-bodied with outstanding purity and balance. Most Montelena estate Cabernets have traditionally required patience, but this one is set for drinking now and over the next 20 years. (RP) (1/2015)  Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
