Chuy Ordaz has hand tended the Montecillo Vineyard for over 40 years. These old Cabernet Sauvignon vines seem to nod in respect towards Chuy when he walks by them or when he stops to tuck a shoot or remove a leaf. Chuy remarked about the 2014 vintage, “2014 is classic Montecillo – very good year, very good wine”.

 

Robert Parker 95 Points: “The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Montecillo from Moon Mountain emerges from a vineyard planted in 1964 on St. George rootstock, hence it was never prone to phylloxera. The vineyard is planted between 800 and 2,000 feet in elevation. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon has a fabulous nose of charcoal, barbecue smoke, blackberry and cassis with some forest floor and underbrush. It is a big, juicy, concentrated and beautifully textured Cabernet. It is a major sleeper of the vintage, and can be drunk over the next 20-25 years.”

 

Winemaker Notes: “2014 was a 'classic' vintage in Northern California and for Montecillo Cabernet Sauvignon. Though the drought continued in California through its third year, the growing season was without extreme heat allowing the dry farmed vines, planted in 1964, to mature slowly and evenly reaching flavor maturity without high sugars. The wine has classic mountain Cabernet freshness and structure. Beautifully aromatic in the glass, the wine greets our senses with black raspberry, graphite, grilled wild herbs, incense, a touch of green peppercorn and a streak of mineral sensation.  Aged for 21 months in French oak, half new. After a slow, natural fermentation, the wine was bottled with no filtration."
