Smooth & Supple
held this one for just under two years and finally corked it last night. Brought to a fellow wine enthusiasts home for a bring a collectible and we'll share. He corked an Oakville Ranch Cab...vintage??? The Montelena was by far the more soft of the two. I was very surprised at the subtlety. Soft yet distinct berry notes. Silky. The Oakville was a much more beefy red with smoky undertones.
The four stars represent more the value proposition here. For the price, it's a very good value. I prefer big reds... This one is a good every day red that stood up to my lasagne! It needed to breathe a bit at first but then was fine.
