1996 Chateau Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #301034 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Medium garnet-brick colored, the 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate features notions of cassis, warm blackberries and eucalypt with touches of mocha, smoked meats and sandalwood plus a waft of pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with rich, savory flavors, with a chewy frame and just enough vivacity, finishing long and meaty. (LPB) Inner quote mark (1/2018)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Openly fruity and seductive, with layers of cherry, currant and berry; extraordinary flavors and balance. (JL) Inner quote mark (1/1999)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Good ruby-red. Spicy, roasted aromas of cassis, black plum, toasty oak and pepper. Lush, jammy and a bit undifferentiated; showing its baby fat today. Seems distinctly less lively than the '95, but the tannins are quite fine for the vintage and there excellent finishing persistence. (ST) Inner quote mark (1/1999)
