1997 Chateau Montelena "Calistoga Cuvee" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #301224 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright medium ruby. Inky aroma of blackberry, minerals, shoe polish and loam. Tightly wrapped on entry, then rather creamy in the middle, with cassis and blackberry flavors. Full for this wine; finishes with good length and substantial but even tannins. Seems less rustic than usual, perhaps because the tannins are riper. Inner quote mark (5/2000)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Appealing for its ripe, supple plum, black cherry, tobacco, earth and cedar notes, it's only mildly tannic, with a mineral edge. (JL) Inner quote mark (4/2000)

K&L Notes

The mighty '97 vintage was wildly successful for the Montelena folks and they're proud to share that fact with anyone who asks. The Calistoga Cuvee from Montelena is their district or "village" wine. The grapes come from neighbors by way of contracts that Montelena has with local growers in the north end of the Napa Valley.
