Description:

Chateau Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 1997
Napa
"There are 10,200 cases of the remarkable 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate. Opaque purple-colored with a dense, chewy, full-bodied personality, it displays abundant cassis, mineral, and earth notes. This brilliantly made, super-concentrated, pure, blockbuster possesses sweet tannin as well as a terrific finish. Having added additional weight since last year, this sumptuous, multilayered, profoundly concentrated Cabernet contains 14% alcohol. It is a candidate for 25-30 years of longevity. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2030." R. Parker for TWA, 98 pts. 12/00
3 bottles
Provenance: Winter's Collection.
Estimate $375-525
