External Reviews for Montoya Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Montoya has produced a great Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, from the dark red color to its sharp, full nose, all the way through to a complex and rewarding finish. Aged in American and French oak, the feel is smooth and spicy with hints of black pepper, dense fruit layers, and herbal notes on the finish. Perfect for pairing with grilled meats and hearty pasta.
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.
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.
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.
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.
