Montelena Red Wines
2012 Napa Valley Cabernet 750 ml
In the glass, aromas of ripe plum, raspberry, and strawberry jam co-mingle with a touch of vanilla and star anise.  The bright ruby color belies a rich concentration and viscosity punctuated with blueberry and blackberry notes woven into chewy, ripe tannins.  The rich acid backbone ties the palate together and aids the seamless transition into a finish layered with ripe cherries, baking spices, and cocoa.
2010 Petite Sirah Napa Valley 750 ml
In the glass, the wine is inky black with aromas of bright blueberry and cloves interspersed with a touch of cassis and cocoa.  There is an inherent richness and pervasive viscosity on the palate that supports the firm tannin structure and elevates the raspberry and jam undertones.  It’s really this layered integration and balance that sets the wine apart.  The subtle minerality on the finish lends a degree of elegance and finesse, a rarity in this variety. 
2006 Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 750 ml
The 2006 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon has an enticing deep garnet red color in the glass. On the nose there are complex notes of blackberry tart, clove, cinnamon, and cocoa, along with dried black currants. The mouth has a soft supple entry, youthful crisp acidity, juicy plum and rich bright red fruit notes, all complemented by loads of fine grain tannin and an under-layer of dried black currant.

2009 Montelena Estate Zinfandel 750 ml
Web Exclusive
Beautiful and dark garnet in color, this Zinfandel opens with aromas of bright raspberry and floral top notes; followed by cedar, dried berries, dried plums, and the classic Zinfandel briar-berry along with hints of pipe tobacco and dusty cocoa.   The palate opens softly, with exceptional balance, and builds nicely into a good full finish.  Dried fruit notes are perfectly complemented by fresh, red currant and mature black fruit flavors.   Very juicy on the palate, it is ripe and sweet, with good length and just a hint of herbs on the finish.   It shows good weight and velvety tannins throughout – very fleshy without being overbearing – and should pair nicely with a wide variety of dishes.
