Chateau Montelena 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon

A great vertical, 1995, 1996, 1997, & 1998 with great score at a value price! Only one available.


1997:

The bottle is in perfect condition. The fill is halfway down the neck of the bottle. The wine retains a beautiful ruby color. There is a very small amount of sediment visible. There are no tears or bends in the label.


Wine Advocate, Robert Parker, 98Pts:

"There are 10,200 cases of the remarkable 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate. Opaque purple-colored with a dense, chewy, full-bodied personality, it displays abundant cassis, mineral, and earth notes. This brilliantly made, super-concentrated, pure, blockbuster possesses sweet tannin as well as a terrific finish. Having added additional weight since last year, this sumptuous, multilayered, profoundly concentrated Cabernet contains 14% alcohol. It is a candidate for 25-30 years of longevity.”
