Chateau Montelena

The Montelena Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1991

En mag and my last bottle of a wine that is so very near and dear to my heart. Both from a human and wine lover’s perspective. Still ample delicious fruit combined with tannic back bone. Structure, balance, pucker, polish; everything I love in an aged Montelena. Fortunate to share it with an extraordinary crew @Eric LaMasters @David L @Joe Lucca @Mike R @Shawn R @Aaron Hamrock — 9 days ago

Harlan Estate

Napa Valley Proprietary Red Blend 1993

This was a very generous gift bottle from my brothers-in-law, opened for our 25th anniversary. It took about 30 minutes to open up, at which point it was simply fantastic. Great effusive bouquet, a classic cab palate of cassis with a touch of eucalyptus, and a long, resonant finish. This was my first experience with Harlan and it reminded me most of the 1991 Montelena. Beautiful. — 5 days ago

The Montelena Estate Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

Smoke on the water.... Deep Purple. Great song and this is a great wine. After 17 years in the bottle I was blown away the color of this wine and how vibrant it was. Easy 15 years left on this thing. I had the 04 a few weeks ago and it was good but lacked the fruit and precision this vintage has. — 14 days ago

Estate Bottled Napa Valley Chardonnay 2015

Quality stuff—light minerality, solid fruit, good balance. Compares favorably with white burgundy at twice the price. Excellent food wine. Enjoyed the 2015 vintage with veal piccata. — 17 days ago

Madrigal Family Winery

Napa Valley Zinfandel 2012

This is a 2012 Martial Zin. Very good! Surprising so. It was part of a wine club offering, so I didn't have high expectations. Marital is a small case winner we discovered from a sales rep from Chateau Montelena. I would buy on its own regardless of my wine club. Usually a Cab and Pinot guy. — 17 days ago

The Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Limited Edition 1995

From the Conti cellar and in fine condition. Typical winery style which is balanced fruit and oak. Vineyard essence and terroir complete this multi faceted wine. So good 🍷🍷 — 2 months ago
