Reminds me of a Lynch Bages or Mouton. Full bodied and chewy, with lovely fruit and round velvety tannins. The finish is packed with some serious fruit, but this could still use some time. Give this until at least 2015. 14+23+22+33. Find the wine

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.
