2006 Chateau Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

California, USA
In stock

The 2006 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon has an enticing deep garnet red color in the glass. On the nose there are complex notes of blackberry tart, clove, cinnamon, and cocoa, along with dried black currants. The mouth has a soft supple entry, youthful crisp acidity, juicy plum and rich bright red fruit notes, all complemented by loads of fine grain tannin and an under-layer of dried black currant. The overall structure is ripe and rich, pure and well delineated. Barrel notes are blended seamlessly and highlighted in the warm, spicy finish.

Chateau Montelena

Napa Valley, California

Chateau Montelena has a celebrated history, and the Judgment of Paris is just one chapter.

Modern technology does not replace people or the art in winemaking but expands our creative potential. There are no formulas here.

Careful consideration drives every project with the determination to build our future.


The 2006 growing season was mild, with greater than average spring rains, and then from veraison through the first half of harvest the Estate saw a lot of heat and drying winds. In mid-September a cold snap hit that virtually halted harvest for close to two weeks. The second half of the harvest that followed was signicantly cooler and the fruit that came in then reected that. e greatest part is that we got the best of both worlds—power, intensity, and ripe jammy flavors from the rst half, balance, elegance, and more subtle notes from the second half. All of this resulted in a wine that has a lot of interest, broad appeal, and the structure to last for decades to come.
