1987 Chateau Montelena Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1326179 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Very youthful, saturated ruby-red color. Penetrating, powerful aromas of roasted plum, cassis, tobacco, earth, truffle, tar and meat, plus a floral topnote. Thick and sweet but sharply delineated, with impressive extract and very strong underlying structure. This is approachable now due to its balance and sheer sweetness of fruit but will go on for another decade or more. Finishing flavors build slowly and linger. Ripe, chewy tannins coat the entire palate. Perhaps better as a meal substitute than as an accompaniment to food. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/1998)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Tight and perhaps even less flashy than usual, it is slow to reveal its complex range of earthy, cedary currant and black cherry.--Chateau Montelena vertical. (JL) Inner quote mark (11/1999)
