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. -- Antonio Galloni

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley release from Montelena has a beautiful bouquet that just jumps from the glass. Lovely notes of crème de cassis, violets, tobacco, and orange blossom all give way to a ripe, medium to full-bodied, sweetly fruited Cabernet Sauvignon that shows the charm of the 2015 front and center. It will keep for 10-15 years.

Label

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (85%) with Merlot (14%) and Cabernet Franc (1%), Chateau Montelena Cabernet is aged in French and Eastern European oak barrels for 14 months. 16% of the barrels are new.

The wines aim to express the fruit from which they are made and the vintage in which they are grown, with all other elements in balance to complement the fruit. To achieve this goal, Chateau Montelena uses modern crushing, de-stemming and pressing equipment to process the grapes as gently as possible. Temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks allow the wines to ferment slowly and evenly.
