93pointsChateau Montelena 2002 Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley)

Cellar Selection

Right now this wine is strutting its stuff, showing dense, fudge-like scents of tobacco, cassis and whiffs of vanilla and coconut and flavors of blackberry with lashings of vanilla and cocoa. But like many vintages of Montelena, expect this one to shut down in another year only to reemerge as a beauty around age 10 or 12. Another classic. Joe Czerwinski
