We are about to embark on a series of Taste & Talk posts and videos on wines that are recent releases. These will include conversations and interviews with the people behind the wine because, as I am sure you know, we believe in sharing the stories and placing the wine tasting note in context.
We will occasionally inject some more mature wines into the mix as well because we want to share wines from different vintages, different price ranges and hard to find wines to help you make informed decisions if you have these in your cellar, come across them on a wine list somewhere or are looking for a special occasion wine.
Since we will be starting into a string of recent releases soon I wanted to share my experience a couple weeks ago with a 10 year old Cabernet Sauvignon from one of my favorite California producers, Chateau Montelena.
First, some context to put the tasting note into perspective. If you need immediate satisfaction and just want the tasting note go to the bottom of the post.
