Product Details

exquisite · velvety · structure
Fresh and lively, the wine opens elusively with raspberry, mint, and plum sauce. Baking spices soon follow, leaning clove initially but with plenty of cedar and vanilla. Still subtle, the ripe fruit elements, mostly cassis and fig at this stage, lurk beneath the surface along with beautiful hints of graphite and toasted sage, awaiting additional time in the glass.

The dynamic tension on the midpalate serves to focus and magnify the layers of black cherry, cocoa powder, and black pepper, before turning slightly earthy and dusty. The structure is pronounced, but still harmonious and well-defined.

It’s in the transition to the finish that the acidity materializes in an almost candy-like fashion, a beautiful contrast to the supple tannins. Here the wine’s density shines elegantly, well balanced between smoky, espresso bean and delicate, dried blackberry.

With a customized wine accessory or personal gift message, the Montelena Estate Cabernet is as much a statement as it is an unforgettable wine gift.
