An extraordinary tasting that focusses on an iconic Napa valley estate – Chateau Montelena. This estate shot to fame in the 1976 Judgement of Paris when its Chardonnay defeated top white wines from Burgundy. Since then they have become one of Napa’s top estates and we have an amazing opportunity to taste five of their outstanding Estate Cabernet Sauvignons dating from 2015 to 2004. The current retail price for the Estate Cab Sauv is £160/bottle.
We will taste eight wines with an average price over £100/bottle. Each wine will be supplied in a tasting quantity of 50ml.
Wines we are tasting include:
Potter Valley Riesling 2019
Napa Valley Chardonnay 2012
Calistoga Zinfandel 2015
Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, 2014, 2013, 2006, 2004
This is a truly unmissable opportunity to taste such a range of older vintages from this historic Napa estate.
The eight wines will be decanted and delivered on the morning or day before the tasting. Because of the high value of the wines we are tasting I will need to limit numbers, and may need to make a small charge for postage to addresses it is not practical to deliver to a specific address.
Fine wine tasting dinners are hosted by Tim Syrad, who has 25 years experience of running wine tastings, and also runs the monthly Richmond and Teddington Wine Societies. He is a fervent advocate that wine is to be enjoyed without snobbery. Whether you are a complete novice or an experienced taster, there will be plenty to learn and enjoy.
