Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon Montelena Estate 2002, 750mL (WA96+) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon Montelena Estate

750mL

Vintage: 2002
Region: US
Appellation: Napa
Condition: missing Capsule

WA96+
Rated 96+ points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `This appears to be one of the great efforts from Chateau Montelena, something I think I was correct about when I gave it an `in the bottle` rating in 2006 of 95+. It is still an amazingly young wine that came from old vines on the famous St. George rootstock that did not require replanting because of the phylloxera epidemic that swept through Napa in the late 1980`s and 1990`s. Despite its lofty 14.4% alcohol (high by Montelena standards) and the overall flamboyance of the 2002 vintage, it needs another 4-6 years of cellaring. This young, classic Cabernet Sauvignon represents the quintessential traditional school of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. It possesses an inky/blue/purple color in addition to a tight, but promising nose of black currants, crushed rocks, earth and spice. Rich, full-bodied, pure and brilliantly executed, with perfect harmony, this is a sensational yet forebodingly backward, youthful Cabernet Sauvignon that needs 4-6 years of cellaring and should keep another quarter of a century.` -- Robert Parker in the Wine Advocate
