International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 114

Saturated, deep ruby-red. Quintessential cabernet aromas of blackcurrant, black cherry, dark chocolate, licorice, black olive, mint and earth, sweetened by some roasted oak tones. Dense, supple and seamless; much more concentrated than the basic Napa Valley bottling but also more pliant from the outset, even if it will need a good six to eight years of cellaring. Old-style, classic Napa cabernet with a powerful, building finish.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 195

Montelena's backward, elegant, complex 2001 Estate reveals a dense ruby/purple color along with foresty, earthy notes intermixed with black currant characteristics as well as sweet tannin. Always a less ripe outlier (although it contains 14% natural alcohol), it will benefit from 2-3 more years of cellaring and should keep for at least 20 more years based on the extraordinary longevity Montelena Cabernet Sauvignons possess.

Good but not quite ready and may be missing the great montelena stuffing, time will tell.

Very smooth, easy drinking. Opened up nicely. Had next to 99' Spottswoode, and a good comparison. More fruit, a little more structure. Overall, a better than solid wine!
