    This is a decadent Napa Cabernet - luscious, rich and very full bodied. For me, Montelena Cab is the best of the big valley floor style, and the 1994 is a very rich example of an already decadent style. This has the glycerin and weight of the cult Cabernets, but is much more vinous, focused and food friendly. I have had the opportunity to drink this on several occasions, and the latest bottle, served with some simply grilled Porterhouse steaks, was the best I have had yet. This 1994 makes a great gift, because it is drinking well now, yet will cellar, and comes from a big name that over delivers on the wine in the bottle.
    Drink from 2009 to 2019

    I want to lie about how good this is, so I can keep the next shipment of 1994 Montelena to myself. I bought a bottle on Gary's recommendation. Vanilla, cherries, and a lucious mouthfeel. A beautifully structured wine with a 60+ second finish. I will order as many bottles as I can next time it's in stock.<br><br>Please note that I decanted for about an hour, but after being open for about 3 hours, the structure began to weaken considerably.

    Drink from 2010 to 2011
