Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, December 2008
Revealing sweeter tannin and a softer riper fuller-bodied style the 2006 Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a beautiful classic wine with loads of berry fruit an earthy character and a spicy pure rich finish... Revealing sweeter tannin and a softer riper fuller-bodied style the 2006 Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a beautiful classic wine with loads of berry fruit an earthy character and a spicy pure rich finish. The silkiness of the tannins suggests this 2006 will be drinkable in several years. It is another candidate for nearly two decades of aging.

Blackberry cassis and boysenberry aromas complemented by licorice violet menthol and bitter chocolate. Juicy intensely flavored and quite fresh but a bit youthfully disjointed with a firm tannin/acid spine supporting the crushed dark berry and menthol flavors. The wine's substantial tannins will need time to knit but this wine retains good aromatic freshness.
