Tasting Notes

WE94

This is the winery's basic Cabernet, but there’s nothing common about it. It’s dry and complex and moderately ageworthy, a hillside Cabernet that revels in its plush, firm tannins and ripe fruit. There’s a minerality that seems to come from the soil, with expressive blackberry, currant, chocolate and anise flavors. Really fine now after a decant, and should develop through this decade.

WSM92

Mochachino scents of oak come first, followed by a blast of cherry fruit, the chocolate and cherry flavors expanding into a vast wine, crushed by a mineral stomp of tannin in the end. This is powerful without being superripe or hot, just impressively huge. Serve it to your power-hungry friends.

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.
