Category Red Wine
Region California, Napa Valley
Brand Chappellet
Alcohol/vol 14.5%
A classic expression of hillside Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, this luxurious and powerfully structured wine begins with aromas of ripe berry, cherry, cedar and cigar box, as well as notes of dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla and clove. On the palate, rich, but well-knit tannins, underscore silky berry liqueur flavors, carrying the wine to a lingering finish with hints of bay leaf and anise.

This is made entirely from mountain fruit along the eastern hills of the Napa Valley, including the producer's estate. It is blended with 12% Petit Verdot and 9% Malbec. Smoky oak, clove and tobacco accent red fruit and a savory bottom line of cedar and sage. It's rich but well behaved.

A ripe and toasty style, featuring layers of warmed fig and currant preserve flavors, laced with roasted vanilla, cocoa and tobacco leaf notes. Shows good energy despite the toasty overlay, though this is more about heft than purity in the end. Best from 2020 through 2025. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
