International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 144

Bright ruby-red. Blackberry, cassis and boysenberry aromas complemented by licorice, violet, menthol and bitter chocolate. Juicy, intensely flavored and quite fresh but a bit youthfully disjointed, with a firm tannin/acid spine supporting the crushed dark berry and menthol flavors. The wine's substantial tannins will need time to knit, but this wine retains good aromatic freshness.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 180

Revealing sweeter tannin and a softer, riper, fuller-bodied style, the 2006 Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a beautiful, classic wine with loads of berry fruit, an earthy character, and a spicy, pure, rich finish. The silkiness of the tannins suggests this 2006 will be drinkable in several years. It is another candidate for nearly two decades of aging.

Good paring with red meats. One of the more solid vintages to date.

Way too young, approachable on day 2. The goods are there but wait 10 years.

Not loved as much as expected. While it was populated with a fruit forward taste of strawberry and dark cherry, it lacked a balanced acidity and complexity from the region. Indeed, it almost tasted a little sweet. Tannins were soft and nuanced with a medium length finish.
