Montelena Red Wines
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.
