Wine Notes

The 2009 was the first of three cool vintages; we had a long, very moderate growing season and a long steady harvest which allowed for fantastic flavor development in all of our Cabernet vineyards. The cooler weather throughout the summer made for great growing conditions (and high yields) and then, in September, we got just enough warm weather to bring the fruit to full ripeness.  The absence of any major heat events during the summer and during harvest resulted in lower-than-normal sugars, great balance, and no issues with shriveling fruit – perfect conditions for the classic, Montelena style of wines.

The nose opens with black cherry, currants and plum spice cake notes. Underpinning all that fruit are layers of smoke, anise and very subtle oak tones. The palate begins soft and round, but builds quickly with loads of fine velvety tannins and red fruits that persist throughout. The finish is rich and layered, with spice and dried fruit. A firm core of acid and barrel spice integrate beautifully across all layers, enhancing the structure and balance.
