Chateau Montelena Winery Cabernet Sauvignon
Summertime temperatures were pleasantly warm by mid-afternoon, with just a little bit of chill each morning from the fog that sneaks in from northern Knights Valley. That marine layer gives the vines a chance to ease into the day and helps preserve the acidity that remains a hallmark of this wine, especially in the dry-farmed vineyards. Its rare to get incredible flavor development and high yields in the same year, but was definitely a bumper crop and we couldnt have been more pleased with the power, elegance, and nuance in the fruit we harvested. The key word here is balance both in the vines and in the wines.

In the glass, aromas of ripe plum, raspberry, and strawberry jam co-mingle with a touch of vanilla and star anise. The bright ruby color belies a rich concentration and viscosity punctuated with blueberry and blackberry notes woven into chewy, ripe tannins. The rich acid backbone ties the palate together and aids the seamless transition into a finish layered with ripe cherries, baking spices, and cocoa.
