K&L Notes

Dating back to the 1880s, Chateau Montelena is one of the most important estates in Napa Valley. Its modern era dates back to the first wines that Jim Barrett made in 1972, and the rest is certainly history. The diverse terroir of their Calistoga AVA property is paramount to the profile of their Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2010 is a vintage in which terroir reigns supreme. The vineyard features volcanic and alluvial soils sloping gently down toward the Napa River.

    The 2010 vintage may not have been as talked up as the more forward 2007, but this wine comes on like a more subdued version of 2007: a savory, sage aroma with a dusty, gravelly background opens up to a medley of brown baking spices and sweet fruit, finally, revealing itself on the palate. Clean, old school Cab! Tasted from 1.5L, January, 2018.
