Tasting Notes

CG97

77% Cabernet Sauvignon; 12% Petit Verdot; 8% Malbec; 3% Other. Leaping out of the glass with its intensely fruity, keenly focused, layered aromas of black currants, hints of blackberries and creme caramel all tightly wrapped up in youthful vivacity that screams "aging potential", this deep and dramatic effort delivers an equally full measure of generous yet barely evolved flavor on the palate. Its full and supple yet somewhat fleshy palatefeel is may invite early drinking, but its underlying structure insures that it will improve for years to come.

WS96

Sleek, rich, intense and beautifully balanced, with a complex mix of black currant and black cherry, plus red and black licorice. Firm, focused, expansive and layered, ending with classic Bordeaux-like cedar, tobacco and cigar box notes. Drink now through 2020.

The Winery

Chappellet

"“Chappellet is a wine-lover’s wine:eloquent to the sentient.”— Hugh Johnson"

The Chappellet’s romance with Pritchard Hill began when Donn Chappellet first glimpsed the mountain’s spectacular vistas in the late 1960s. Inspired by the notion that “Bacchus loves the hills” and following the advice of legendary winemaker Andre Tchelistcheff, he settled his family on the rocky eastern slopes of the Napa Valley. There, on Pritchard Hill’s serene hillsides the Chappellet family has cultivated their mountain vineyard to produce some of the Napa Valley’s most acclaimed Bordeaux varietal wines.
