"1997 Calistoga Cuvee Cabernet Sauvignon printable version .pdf version Winemaker's Notes The Montelena crew will tell the story of the Mighty ’97 into the next millenium. Harvest tonnage was up dramatically from the low of 1996. All growers had a great year, and in on the fun were our good old local Calistoga Cuvee growers with huge, high quality crops. This wine is our “Village” or district wine. We have long term contracts with carefully selected growers whose properties are in close proximity to some of the finest vineyards in the world (Montelena, Three Palms, Araujo-Eiesle, and Diamond Creek to name just a few) right here in the north end of the Napa Valley: With grapes grown to our exacting specifications, we make the wine to express the essence of “Calistoga Cabernet”; mostly berry fruit and big, bold flavors. The Cuvee is produced to be soft and young drinking. So it is with this vintage. "

90 points "1st year and the best of the Calistoga Cuvee's. It displayed just how good the 1991 fruit was. It was created to be consumed young, but the fruit so powerful and pure it was able to be decanted and consumed showing nice balance of fruit, alcohol, acitity, sweetness, and a slight trace of tannins on the finish even after 19 years. The only thing keeping it from a higher score was its simplicity."
