Product Description

The 2009 Chateau Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is made up of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc and was aged in 100% French oak (34% new barrels) for 22 months. A complex set of aromas and flavors include: red berries, black cherry, cigar box, rose petals, and sweet herbs with balanced oak treatment. An intense wine that should cellar nicely well into the 2020s if not 2030.

Robert Parker: 93 Points: "Montelena's 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate wraps around the palate with serious depth. Even with all of its intensity, the 2009 has a silkiness that makes it incredibly delicious at this early stage. Red berries, flowers, tobacco and sweet herbs all flesh out on the generous, radiant finish. While many 2009s are a bit tight today, Montelena's 2009 Estate is showing very nicely, although it is keeping some cards close to the vest. I imagine the 2009 will start to enter its prime drinking window around age 8-10 and drink well for at least another decade beyond that. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029."
