1995 Chateau Montelena "The Montelena Estate" Cabernet Sauvignon
Here is a nice clean bottle of the 1995 Chateau Montelena "The Montelena Estate" Cabernet Sauvignon. Bottle fill is fine. A tasting note Wine Advocate - The color is an opaque purple. The wine is full-bodied and powerful, with classic notes of cassis intermixed with loamy soil scents, underbrush, and spice. There is massive body and elevated, but sweet tannin that is well-integrated with the wine's other components, a blockbuster mid-palate, and a finish that lasts for 30+ seconds. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2025. Score: 94. - Robert Parker, December 1998.
PREVIEW: Will go on Auction at Ebay January 3, 2008.
