About Chateau Montelena 2013 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon , Napa Vly.

Chateau Montelena's rich history began on a chilly fall morning when Alfred L. Tubbs spaded over and inspected the soil where he thought of planting estate vineyards. He'd heard the Napa Valley was the best place to grow grapes in California. A deal was struck and in January of 1882 the San Francisco entrepreneur owned 254 acres of rugged land just two miles north of Calistoga at the base of Mount Saint Helena. The soils are well drained, stony and loose – perfect for the vine cuttings he would plant. The Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is grown in one of the world's most remarkable winegrowing properties. The site's diversity of soils and slopes translates directly into the layers of complex flavors in this flagship wine. 2013 Chateau Montelena's Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is made up of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1.5% Cabernet Franc and 1.5% Petit Verdot. The wine is aged in 100% French oak barrels (30% new) for 22 months. Vinous scored this 95 points saying "Montelena's 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is unctuous, deep and concentrated. A wine of gravitas and power, the 2013 possesses remarkable textural richness, with a demi-glace like sweetness that is unusual for this wine and that lends an exotic feel throughout. The tannins are nearly buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit, but they are very much present. Patience will be key. Iron, smoke, tar and licorice are some of the many notes that infuse the voluptuous finish." and the Wine Advocate scored it 96 points saying "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate opens with profound black and red currant cordial notes over an undercurrent of Indian spices, chargrill, scorched earth and bay leaves. Medium-bodied with wonderful intensity and depth in the mouth, it has a firm frame of grainy tannins and compelling freshness, finishing long and layered." Limited!!
