Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon Montelena Estate 2009,  (WA93+, ST93) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon Montelena Estate

Vintage: 2009
Region: US
Appellation: Napa

WA93+, ST93
Rated 93+ points by the Wine Advocate: `Montelena`s 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate wraps around the palate with serious depth. Even with all of its intensity, the 2009 has a silkiness that makes it incredibly delicious at this early stage. Red berries, flowers, tobacco and sweet herbs all flesh out on the generous, radiant finish. While many 2009s are a bit tight today, Montelena`s 2009 Estate is showing very nicely, although it is keeping some cards close to the vest. I imagine the 2009 will start to enter its prime drinking window around age 8-10 and drink well for at least another decade beyond that. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.` -- Reviewed by Antonio GalloniAdditional Notes from Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `Chateau Montelena`s 2010 Cabernets are among the highlights in this set of new releases, although the 2011 Chardonnay is pretty terrific as well. Bo Barrett credits his experiences in 1987 and 1988 as a big reason he was able to handle the stresses of the 2010 vintage, in particular the late season heat spikes that gave growers fits. It`s great to see this historic property making wines that live up to its reputation. A recent bottle of the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate was also superb.`
