1996 Chateau Montelena Calistoga Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #300886

The second-label of the legendary Chateau Montelena. In the glass it has a good deep color, all the way to the edge. Since it is a blend of several vineyards in Montelena's district we think it demonstrates the tonal range of smells and flavors unique to this part of the Napa Valley. The nose is well-concentrated Cabernet fruit cassis with some black olive and even a bit of leather which all come together to make a spicy jam impression. The palate demonstrates how they make the Calistoga Cuvee easy to like, with soft round tannins that carry that jammy fruit melody and a nice rich extract, not too big. The jammy Cabernet and very earthy concentration reflect the very low yields of 1996. We think this wine will show very well and will benefit by further bottle aging.
