Just a stunner.
2008 Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon – The Montelena Estate
Notes: Stunning. Still a little young, but wonderful structure, fruit, and creaminess. Like drinking velvet. A very nice juxtaposition of California Cab and Bordeaux, it has the American cluster but settles down with a great deal of refinement, much like an AMG can smoke the tires, but still be a wonderful grand touring car. Delicious.
Price: $150 at North Charles Fine Wines and Spirits.
