Far too young and extremely tight, but nice potential.

A very fine Cabernet but not as memorable as the name would make you expect - unobjectionable pairing with snapper -2013 vintage

I really tasted all tart cherry at first sip and disliked. But once opened much better. Aromas are pleasing to the nose. Fruit and floral. Soft dry finish.

Big. Straight. Cab. All spiced and mature fruit. Love the earthiness and tobacco. Might sound bad strange but it is approaching the prickly black nature of a Barossa Shiraz. Big. Pointed. WBA $50 Goody Goody Woodway

Bought spring 2016 at Pine Orchard, $51.99. Calistoga, Napa Valley. Was perfect with fillet mignon. Rich, full body with berry fruit up front, finishing with firm, but not over powering tannins.

Dark Black Fruit, Spice, and slight oak. I was not as impressed as I was with Chateau Montelena's Chardonnay. This was definitely a Bordeaux style cab.... not very jammy.

2013 was another good year. Smooth tannins, easy drinking

Always pay respects to one of the California kings. Dark plum fruit, cassis and vanilla. Concentrated and rich. Appropriate tannins and lively acidity.

I have had several vintages from Montalena and this one does not disappoint.
