This medium to full-bodied red wine is a Napa Valley showstopper. It’s powerful and intense, and beautifully tasty.

TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

The Château Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon comes in a garnet-purple color, and scored a 95 on Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. On the nose, it gives aromas of dried cherries, baking spices, vanilla, and hints of espresso bean, pipe tobacco, and lavender. On the palate, dark fruit is prominent, as in blackberry and plum. There are also flavor notes of smoke, anise, and cocoa.

It has a balanced finish of fresh raspberries, and a subtle hint of mint. Additional aging will make this wine even better, with its rich depth and texture.

PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS

This Napa Valley stunner works well with many complex dishes. Enjoy a glass with your charcuterie, paired with salami, and cheeses like gorgonzola, aged cheddar, and gruyere. A hearty steak will be perfect with it, as will a roast leg of lamb, a beef brisket, or a roast pigeon.

GAME CHANGER

Chateau Montelena’s win in the historic Judgement of Paris, or Paris Wine Tasting of 1976, didn’t just bag a grand prize recognition for the winery. It also placed Napa Valley wines in general on the map. Given the biased notions at that time that only French wines would reign supreme, the blind tasting composed of nine French judges out of 11, proved that non-French wines had a chance in making a name on its own too.

Although the news of the Napa Valley winery’s win was mostly ignored by French press, The Paris Wine Tasting of 1976 had a revolutionary impact on expanding the production and prestige of wine in the New World. It also gave the French a valuable incentive to review traditions that were sometimes more accumulations of habit and to reexamine convictions that were little more than myths taken on trust.
