2017 Chateau Montelena Napa Valley Cab

$56.99

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. Soft, fruity and easygoing, the Napa Valley Cabernet shows the mid-weight structure of the vintage nicely. In 2017, Montelena did not pick one 11-acre vineyard because of the fires, which means that the blend has a bit more Merlot than normal. That, in turn, adds to the wine’s supple, forward feel.

ABOUT THE WINERY


Originally started in 1882, Chateau Montelena shuttered its wine making operations during prohibition. The winery sat dormant until amongst other partners, the Barrett family planted vines and began producing wines again in 1972.

Chateau Montelena is a Napa Valley winery most famous for winning the white wine section of the historic “Judgment of Paris” wine competition. Chateau Montelena’s Chardonnay was in competition with nine other wines from France and California under blind tasting. All 11 judges awarded their top scores to either the Chardonnays from Chateau Montelena or Chalone Winery, another California wine producer.
