Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2012

Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 750ml 2012     
Sku: 16197

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate boasts a dark plum/garnet color, sweet blackcurrant and cassis fruit, a hint of loamy soil, medium body, and round tannins, but not the great richness found in past vintages. Slightly more depth would have raised my score, but this will turn out to be an excellent Cabernet Sauvignon. Consume it over the next 10-15 years.

From bottle a solid 93. Surprisingly lush and charming for a young Montelena, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate has a deep ruby/purple color, with earthy, black cherry and blackcurrants. The wine has very ripe tannins, and is medium to full-bodied with outstanding purity and balance. Most Montelena estate Cabernets have traditionally required patience, but this one is set for drinking now and over the next 20 years.
