Ch Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon 'the Montelena Estate' 1998

Wine Advocate: The 1998 cabernet sauvignon estate will disprove all the naysayers about how bad the vintage was in the north coast. It possesses an opaque ruby/purple color, a gorgeous perfume of loamy soil, new saddle leather, chocolate, and black cherry and black currant fruit, full body, and ripe tannin in the finish. As it sits in the glass, notes of cedar and spice box also emerge. Although more evolved than most montelena cabernets are at age 4, there is no doubting that it will still provide considerable pleasure at age 15 or 16. Kudos to the barretts for producing this impressive 1998 cabernet sauvignon, one of the vintage's few stars. 93 points
