Chateau-Montelena-Napa-Valley-Cabernet-Sauvignon-2016

Chateau Montelena, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, 2016

“The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is a very pretty wine. Floral, lithe and understated, the 2016 is a wine of grace above all else. Sweet red cherry, mint, licorice, sweet tobacco and cedar open up in a fragrant, classically built Cabernet that is long on class and character. This is a seriously beautiful Cabernet in its peer group.”
- Antonio Galloni, Vinous (92 points)

“The largest production cuvée is the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, which comes mostly from Calistoga (there’s a small amount of Merlot and Cabernet Franc from Oak Knoll) and spends 16 months in roughly 20% new French oak. Its ruby/purple color is followed by a vibrant, juicy wine that has plenty of black cherry, blackberry, spring flowers, and graphite. It’s medium-bodied, elegant and seamless, with terrific purity and a balanced, juicy style. It’s beautiful, classic Napa Valley Cabernet to drink over the coming 10-15 years.”
