Chateau Montelena Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Nose: Fresh raspberries tee off a parade of red fruit punctuated by rich strawberry jam, and bolstered by vanilla, black pepper, and violets. Palate: There's a latent weight and density on the palate along with fine-grained tannins that have just begun to slowly integrate with the rich, dark fruit of the vintage. Finish: The texture and mouthfeel of the wine build on the transition to the finish, which strikes a fine balance between the subtle acidity lingering just below the surface and the concentration of the fruit and tannins.
