2015 Chateau Montelena Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Quick Overview

The nose; Fresh raspberries tee off a parade of red fruit punctuated by rich strawberry jam, and bolstered by vanilla, black pepper, and violets. On the palate there's a latent weight and density with fine-grained tannins that have just begun to slowly integrate with the rich, dark fruit of the vintage. On the finish, the texture and mouthfeel of the wine build which strikes a fine balance between the subtle acidity lingering just below the surface and the concentration of the fruit and tannins. The weather in 2015 was highly conducive to producing ripe, concentrated wines. Warm, dry conditions catalyzed an early start to the growing season, while a temperate spring coupled with the effects of the multi-year drought limited our yields in the vineyard. Summer temperatures remained manageable as August heat materialized just ahead of harvest.

2015 Chateau Montelena Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

"The most important thing in winemaking is balance; from the technical aspect it is the strength of the triangle: balance of art, farming and science to make consistently great wines." - Bo Barrett

ANTONIO GALLONI RATING: 92

ANTONIO GALLONI REVIEW: Montelena's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is gorgeous. Pliant and supple, the 2015 offers notable density and raciness in an up-front style that will drink well upon release. Succulent red/purplish fruit, spice, new leather and licorice are front and center. A wine of total allure, the 2015 hits all the right spots. Best of all, at $62 a bottle it is one of the best values readers will find in Napa Valley Cabernet. Don't miss it.

WINE & SPIRITS RATING: 93

WINE & SPIRITS REVIEW: Bright red-currant flavors give this wine a feeling of lightness and finesse. The tannins have dimension without feeling heavy or extracted, adding tree-bark scents and lasting spice. Clean and generous, this is open in its youth and balanced for current drinking, though it only gets better with air.
