1995 Chateau Montelena Estate Cabernet - 94 Pts!
At the winery I rated the 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate one point below what I gave it in the blind tasting. Nevertheless my notes on both tastings are nearly identical. This is another winery where the 1995 may be as strong as the 1994. The color is an opaque purple. The wine is full-bodied and powerful with classic notes of cassis intermixed with loamy soil scents underbrush and spice. There is massive body and elevated but sweet tannin that is well-integrated with the wine's other components a blockbuster mid-palate and a finish that lasts for 30+ seconds. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2025.Modern-day society seems to always be in search of new stars but this winery has been a super hero for great California Cabernet Sauvignon for nearly 25 years!Montelena's Estate Cabernet Sauvignons are equivalent to buying blue chip stock. They get better and better with age and as the vertical tastings I have attended so persuasively attest they are still relatively young wines at 20 years of age! RP
