I first discovered this wine on a favorite restaurant's list, thinking I'd not seen the brand offer anything at this price point for years, and then promptly enjoyed it immensely with dinner. The current vintage delivers the same sort of value, with some of the fruit coming from the winery's famed Pritchard Hill fruit. It hits the company standard nicely, with brooding blackberry, pomegranate, lively oak spice and a supple structure that keeps the flavors coming. Decant vigorously and enjoy over the next five years. Contains 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 10% Malbec, 8% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc.
"Blended from the traditional Bordeaux varietals, including our own coveted grapes, the Chappellet Mountain Cuvee Proprietor's Blend builds on our five decades of experience crafting great Napa County mountain-grown wines. Each component varietal in the cuvée contributes to nuances that complement each other. The result is a complex array of aromas and flavors that deliver pure pleasure in a glass. Made for more near-term enjoyment, this is the wine to choose when you're looking for vivid, mouthfilling fruit flavors.
Alluringly dark and spicy, this wine displays beautiful aromas of currant, cassis, sage, and thyme, as well as hints of cinnamon and clove from barrel aging. On the palate, the tannins are impeccably balanced, adding depth to the lush ripe berry flavors, with layers of cola and grenadine emerging as the wine evolves in the glass." - Winery
