Outstanding Napa cabernet from Calistoga. This was enjoyed in magnum with Tri Tip Steak. It is hard to believe this wine is approaching 28 years of age. There are still good amounts of fruit and tannin. Very well balanced and a perfect pairing with Tri Tip. Decanted for 1 hour. Just a mind blowing wine. Could hold for a little longer but I don’t see how it could get better than this. Enjoyable now but no immediate rush.

Dark garnet with orange-reddish rims. Opaque. Angular nose with black currant, saddle leather, wood pile and black licorice. There's also sweetness hidden in there. In the mouth its rich with great structure and balance. Tannins nicely integrated. In a great window right now.

It's 25 yr old Montelena Estate. Meets high expectations.

This vintage still going strong. Plenty of berry fruit and exceptional balance. Delicate mouth feel. Not over the top jammy. My last bottle. This would have held up for another 10 years. Makes me think we have lost the art of balanced cabs in recent years.
