Chateau Montelena Winery 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Chateau Montelena Winery 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is best consumed in a decade after purchase

CABERNET SAUVIGNON


Napa Valley, California

Fun fact: This Napa Valley institution was founded in 1888 as a barrel-aging facility called A.L. Tubbs, and was one of the first wineries in the area made of stone instead of wood. Another fun fact: Chateau Montelena's 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon. It's tremendous fun, actually. This wine should really come into its own in a decade or so, but right now — and it's ok to drink right now — it'll take a few sips before the density and concentration of flavor reveals itself. It's worth the wait.

Suggested Cut: A broiled T-Bone

Rating: 15/20

Price: $53
