A great wine in the making the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (just under 10000 cases produced) possesses a fragrant bouquet of sweet black currants crushed rocks earth and background oak. Full-bodied and dense with Montelena's typical power tannin and reserved nature this is a big rich formidably endowed red that requires 4-5 years of cellaring. That in itself is atypical of this exuberant flamboyant vintage. Given this cuvee's past history this 2007 should age for 30+ years. 94+

Silky on entry then dense and sweet in the middle conveying an impression of power. There's a youthfully medicinal quality to the dark berry and licorice flavors but unusual early sweetness and pliancy to this normally long-aging wine. Finishes with very suave tannins and impressive persistence...93(+?) points
