Jammy on the nose with rich blackcurrant fruit over notes of leather, mint and cedar, turning fresher with air as it reveals more red fruit. Fresh, bright and tense in the mouth, this is still youthfully opulent with meaty hints and a chocolate edge framing the core black currant and black cherry fruit that has a gentle, lingering sweetness to it. Smooth, ripe and very well-balanced, this is at peak. 93 points

This bottle, tasted in April 2010, was still a youthful purple color and maintained a remarkable level of fruit and flavor for its age - but it was unquestionably past its prime. The fruit and structure of bygone days had evolved at age 26 into a soft, pleasant, eminently drinkable wine dominated by cedar and cranberry-like fruit, with touches of tomato and caramel. Open in texture and somewhat limited in the finish, this particular bottle had lost the class and structure that I'm sure it possessed 10 or 15 years ago. Still, remarkable to be holding together this well at age 26.

Chateau Montelena's wines possess gorgeous potential when young, and are even better when revisited later. The 1984 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits the forward, jammy, cassis, and other black fruit character of the vintage, marvelously rich, full-bodied,... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
