2008 Château Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1084106 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a gorgeous, mid-weight wine laced with mint, cassis, sweet herbs and tobacco. It is an understated, gracious wine from start to finish. This is a relatively approachable vintage for the Estate. It shows tons of finesse and mid-palate generosity while maintaining a medium-bodied personality. Today it is quite young, although it is drinking well. Readers who prefer more tertiary notes will want to cellar the wine for at least a few years. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2011)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Good dark red with a ruby tinge; not the darkest of these more recent vintages. Lively nose combines cassis, licorice, bitter chocolate, mint, leather and vanillin oak; hinted at a slight candied fruit quality as it opened in the glass. Wonderfully sweet and surprisingly creamy in the mouth, conveying an easygoing, low-acid impression but excellent fruit intensity. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Old-school, but well-done, this is tight and firm, showing a dense, balanced mix of dried currant, mineral, cedar, cigar box and tobacco flavors. Ends with good depth, range of flavor and tannins. (JL) Inner quote mark (7/2012)
