Chateau Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Calistoga|
International Wine Cellar
Not a wine for drinking now or anytime soon. It's so hard in tannins, it basically locks down the palate, and the astringency seems to accentuate the acidity and dryness. However, there is a deep core of blackberry essence and, after all, this is Montelena. All indications are that it will be a terrific wine in another 8 or 10 years.
