Montelena Estate Cabernet
2008 Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 750 ml
Dense, rich ruby color in the glass, this Estate Cabernet Sauvignon shows complex aromas of dark cherry, dried fruits, earth, cedar, and vanilla cream along with hints of licorice and leather. The palate opens with big, chewy tannin – firm but not coarse – and builds even bigger into a mid-palate loaded with ripe red fruits and dried black fruits. There is a good, strong acid backbone completing the balance and structure. The barrel flavors are well-integrated throughout but are best evident in the warm and spicy finish. Still quite young and powerful, this dense compact wine will open beautifully with time in bottle (or glass).
2007 Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 750 ml
The intense deep crimson color in the glass pulls you in, while the huge powerful nose captivates; layer on layer of spice, cedar, earth, and tobacco – all over a rich base of ripe black cherry, blackcurrants, cassis, and blueberry jam.  The hook is set with the first whiff.  Rich, round, juicy and mouth-coating, the palate delivers black cherry and black currant before moving on to brighter red fruits.  More subtle tones of butterscotch, anise, and sweet oak complement the fruit beautifully.   The huge classic structure of fine grain tannin and firm acidity persist all the way through to the clean crisp spicy finish.

2005 Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 750 ml
Dark and powerful in the glass with great density and saturation, this wine grabs your attention from the first glance. Luscious and rich on the nose with great depth, we find top notes of violets, cassis, and rich dark cherry, all riding over a base of warm leather, cocoa, wet stone and molasses. The palate opens with red raspberry and blackcurrants before building to mouth-filling ripe cherry, a beautiful acid balance, and round rich velvety tannins.
