Tasting Notes For Chateau Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Chateau Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 is a masterpiece of winemaking that will transport your senses to new heights. As you uncork the bottle, you'll be greeted by a fresh and lively aroma that opens exclusively with raspberry, mint, and plum sauce, followed by a delightful blend of baking spices, including clove, cedar, and vanilla. The ripe fruit elements, including cassis and fig, are lurking beneath the surface, waiting to reveal themselves as you allow the wine to breathe.
The texture and mouthfeel of this wine are truly remarkable, with coarse tannins that perfectly balance the abundant dark fruit flavors of black cherry, cocoa powder, and black pepper. The dynamic tension on the midpalate serves to magnify the layers of flavor, before turning slightly earthy and dusty.
But it's in the transition to the finish that this wine truly shines, with acidity that materializes in almost candy-like fashion, providing a beautiful contrast to the supple tannins. Here, the wine's density comes to the forefront, perfectly balanced between smoky, espresso bean and delicate, dried blackberry. The finish is defined by its persistence in length and depth, leaving a lasting impression on your palate.
