Why Buy Me
Château Montelena was purchased in the early 1970’s by Jim and Judy Barrett. There was no Cabernet planted on the estate at the time. Gradually they planted more and their son Bo is now the CEO.
From a very ripe vintage this wine has complex aromas of dried cherry and vanilla. On the palate dark fruits dominate with vibrant tannins and lively acidity. Pepper and mint are evident on the finish. This wine will develop further with time. Drink 2020-2050
