Very good medium-dark red. Aromatic nose of currant, tobacco and leather; seems cleaner than the last three wines. Supple, smoky and gamey in the mouth; fairly large-scaled. This is quite tasty, but the tannins are fairly rustic. A vintage with high alcohol and a high pH.

There is something reassuring about seeing a bottle of Chateau Montelena. This classic, old Napa Valley winery is best known for its Cabernet Sauvignon, but they can also fashion wonderful Chardonnay from the Alexander and Napa valleys.

A healthy ruby red in color, mature and complex, with wonderful depth, intensity and range of coffee and dried fruit flavors. About all you could ask for from a wine this age.--Chateau Montelena vertical.
