2016 Chateau Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa

2016 Chateau Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa image

Incredibly floral and opulent, the red berry character of this vintage, mostly Bing cherry and raspberry at this stage, is buttressed by rich notes of cocoa, hazelnut, and Earl Grey. Black pepper and cedar complement this freshness exquisitely. Dense but light on its feet, the contrast of velvety tannins and bright acid bookend a youthful and vibrant palate, chock full of blackberry sorbet, plum sauce, and strawberry jam. Fresh fig and marzipan lend richness and texture while stitching these disparate forces into a cohesive yet lively experience. Baking spices abound on the finish along with coffee bean, star anise, and an almost caramel- like sweetness that dovetails beautifully with fresh blueberry and cinnamon.



Blend: 99% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Cabernet Franc
