1995 Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon Montelena Estate Napa Valley

Dark red core with fading at rim. Musty black cherry nose. Plate follows the nose. Black cherries but muted and a bit muddy. Fine tannins, nice acidity and balance. Finishes short with red fruits. This bottle strikes me as past peak, but not shot. With a wine of this age and caliber, another bottle may give very different results. I hope so, I have more. "B-"
