Winemaker Notes

Aromas of cinnamon and allspice quickly yield to ripe cherry and a torrent of red fruit along with a characteristic hint of tobacco. Dark and lush, the initial perception of tart raspberry is overwhelmed by blackberry jam, red licorice, and a supple earthiness that leans toward black pepper and anise. Intriguing in its contrast to the palate, the finish is driven primarily by the briar and spice character of the old vines: layered and dense, with just enough tannin to balance the mocha and barrel toast character from time in the cellar.

Critical Acclaim

WW 93 Wilfred Wong of
COMMENTARY: The 2016 Chateau Montelena is packed, explosive, and delicious. TASTING NOTES: This wine bursts in its aromas and flavors with demonstrative black fruit, loads of berries, and oak. Serve it with barbecue baby back ribs. (Tasted: January 30, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
