There is massive body and elevated but sweet tannin that is well-integrated with the wine's other components... ...full-bodied and powerful with classic notes of cassis intermixed with loamy soil scents underbrush and spice.

Cool, medicinal aromas of black cherry, menthol, graphite, licorice and cinders are quite fresh, even high-pitched. Suave and alive, conveying a slight medicinal coolness to the flavors of dark berries, bitter cherry, leather, minerals and spices. This fine-grained, rather stylish Cabernet is juicy and light on its feet, with enough mid-palate material to cushion its firm tannins. Lovely old-style Cabernet--and not a bruiser.

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, November 1999
Not as dense and concentrated as the 1994 but still a tremendous wine. Elegant and rich with currant cherry cookie dough and vanilla-scented oak.--Chateau Montelena vertical. Best from 2000 through 2010. -JL
