Known as one of the oldest and prettiest wineries in the Napa Valley. Established in 1882, the estate features a stone castle built into the hillside overlooking a Chinese garden, lake, and vineyards that reach to the base of Mt. St. Helena.
In 1976, the famous Judgement of Paris Tasting pushed Napa Valley’s Chateau Montelena into the wine world’s consciousness, bestowing lasting fame...
Nose: cocoa, raspberry jam, and dried fig highlight a bright, fresh nose that quickly settles into a steady parade of baking spices, black pepper, and earth.
Palate: deceptively soft initially, the wine builds with its viscosity and concentration amidst layers of ripe plum, very fine tannins, and espresso bean. A lively ginger note adds a touch of spice, bolstered by dried cherry, tobacco, and fresh bright cranberries.
Finish: is laser-focused, mineral-driven and persistent, not unexpected in young Cabernet. Delicious now, it will add breadth and polish with time in glass.
