One of the historical attributes of the Montelena Estate Cabernet has always been its ageability and longevity. Here at Montelena, we’re all about the pursuit of excellence. By focusing on how we farm, pick, and ferment the grapes and by using precision viticulture techniques, small fermentation lots, and earlier integration of more precisely chosen barrels – matched to the unique characters of each lot – the wine is integrated beautifully across all layers when first released, while retaining the core elements that ensure a long life in the cellar. The only problem…. is that you may need more of it.

Starting out with fairly typical spring weather, the growing season in 2009 was defined by the cool summer, with no major heat waves all season. Any warmer weather was immediately followed by a long, cool period. The effect was slow and steady ripening with long hang time and a later than average start to the harvest. The heat eventually showed up in September, just in time to kick that final ripening stage into gear.
