Chateau Montelena Chardonnay Napa Valley 2007
External Reviews for Chateau Montelena Chardonnay Napa Valley
The finest of these three vintages appears to be the 2007 Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon Estate. As always, there are approximately 10,000 cases of this cuvee, and it sees about 25% new French oak. The 2007 exhibits terrific black raspberry and black currant fruit, an attractive core of minerals, earth, and spice, a fragrant bouquet, admirable purity, full body, and sweet, velvety, noticeable, but not intrusive tannins. The 2007 may be the finest Cabernet Sauvignon Estate since their 2004, 2002, and 2001.
