Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Best Buy!! Easily the best wine from Napa Valley at this price. This finished wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon derived entirely from the Napa Valley. Aged in French and American oak, it has intense flavors of blackberry, plum and vanilla. The long finish is rich with toasty overtones. This full bodied red wine will compliment your finest, robust red meat dishes.

Maybe I'm in left field here, but I found this to be a very nice wine, especially for the price point. I mean, we're not talking Caymus here...this is a $12 everyday wine that has a very smooth finish.

The texture on this Cabernet is a little tough and tart, although the wine does have plenty of blackberry and mocha flavors. Drink it now.

A Napa Valley Cabernet made in a friendly style with lots of appealing black cherry fruit flavor. Finishes with smooth tannins and just a kiss of oak.

Well-integrated oak flavors complement the dense blackberry and raspberry fruit in this delicious Cabernet. An unbelievable value in Napa Cabernet at this price.

Napa Valley characteristics show through with strawberries, raspberries, dark cherries and a faint note of licorice and mint. On the palate, sweet vanilla is brought forth by the nuances of oak aging. The tannins are firm, but not chalky, adding body and finesse. Pair this wine with garlic crusted lamb chops.

An excellent value from Napa Valley. Hints of dusty mocha round out the blackberry fruits in this delicious, full-bodied red. Wonderful by itself, or pair with braised beef or juicy rib-eye steak.

2007 was a spectacular vintage for Cabernet in Napa Valley, and it's evident even in this well-priced favorite. Ripe boysenberry and creme de cassis flavors are at the forefront, while accents of cedar and spice dance across the palate. Fine tannins support all this flavor and give the wine structure to pair with a nice thick steak.

Soft and well-balanced, this scored consistently well in our blind tasting for its notes of dark cherry, raspberry, cedar, and mint. A juicy, unpretentious pour.
