Chateau Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Chateau Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot

Vintage: 2015
Winery: Chateau Montelena
Description: Nose: It doesn't take much time in the glass to reveal the ripeness of the vintage. Dried cherries, baking spices, and vanilla intermingle with softer notes of espresso bean, pipe tobacco, and lavender. Palate: The 2015 steers toward dark fruit with plenty of blackberry jam and plums slowly yielding to intense, vibrant tannins and bright acid. A touch of smoke punctuates the midpalate revealing anise and cocoa, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. Within a few moments rhubarb appears as do dried ginger and black pepper. Additional ageing time is undoubtedly necessary to reveal the potential of this wine. The finish ties both the nose and palate together with fresh raspberries, a subtle hint of mint, and incredible freshness.
