1997 Chateau Montelena Saint Vincent - USA, California, Napa Valley (11/3/2006)
Haggis opened this at his home last week. This is a blend of Zinfandel, Primitivo and Sangiovese. 13.5% alcohol. This spends 12-16 months in oak. I think this is on the downhill side of its drinking window but still in that window. Smooth and not as fruity as you would expect from a Zin blend. Round finish. 88 points.
