A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1997 Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 750ml
There are 10,200 cases of the remarkable 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate. Opaque purple-colored with a dense, chewy, full-bodied personality, it displays abundant cassis, mineral, and earth notes. This brilliantly made, super-concentrated, pure, blockbuster possesses sweet tannin as well as a terrific finish.

Anticipated maturity: 2003-2030.
