If you've been saving some of their Cabs for a special occasion and wondering how they are holding up in your wine cellar, read what one of Chateau Montelena's customer's recently said about their 1976 Cabernet Saugvignon . . .

"Last night I had a small dinner at my home in Healdsburg, CA, in order to honor a friend, and to try out some Napa "Cult" Cabs I had assembled.  Screaming Eagle, Harlan Estate, Bryant Family etc.... But the most amazing surprise was a 1976 Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon North Coast ... wow! 

Whoever made that wine should be very proud, it's drinking wonderfully, even after 35+ years!  Please give my regards to the Barretts and anyone else who had a hand in that very fine bottling. What a pleasure, I'm a winemaker myself, and I just had one of the best wines I've ever had. Bravo!
