A simply superb bottle of wine. Retains youthful dark color. Aromas of spiced fruits. A laser-focused beam of black cherry and oak with a wrapper of mocha coffee, plum, pine, and cigar box. Drinking at its peak. Highly recommended.
From a 750ml, perfect cork, medium ruby color, decanted for one hour. Nose of black fruits and cherries, really opened at hour 2. Complex with a long elegant finish, very approachable for a 10 year old Montelena. Delicious now and will keep for years. 94 points
From a 750ml, perfect cork, 13.5% alcohol. Medium ruby, no bricking, drinks well right from the gitgo. Still lots of black cherry fruit, and while it appears to be mature, lots of structure will carry this wine at this level for years. 93 points
Last bottle but no rush on this one. Decanted for one hour, rich ruby color, 13.5% alcohol, nice nose of black cherries with a bit of cigar box. Really a good food wine, complex with a nice long finish. This wine is mature but will hold for several years. 93 points
