2008 Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon bottle shot

2008 Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Nose Shows complex aromas of dark cherry, dried fruits, earth, cedar, and vanilla cream along with hints of licorice and leather.  

Palate The palate opens with big, chewy tannin – firm but not coarse – and builds even bigger into a mid-palate loaded with ripe red fruits and dried black fruits.  There is a good, strong acid backbone completing the balance and structure.

Finish The barrel flavors are well-integrated throughout but are best evident in the warm and spicy finish.
