    ($42) Full ruby-red. Aromas of currant, tobacco, graphite and crushed rock. Sweet, plush and nicely deep, with a silky texture to the flavors of plum, currant and spicecake. Quite sweet, even a bit exotic, for this bottling. Finishes with substantial broad, dusty tannins and plenty of spicy, chocolatey oak.

    A fabulous buy, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature offers abundant notes of blueberries, cassis, violets, licorice, and incense. Sweet tannins, an opulent, rich, full-bodied mouthfeel, and a velvety finish make this one of the most impressive 2006s I tasted. It can be drunk now or over the next 15-20 years.

    Assertive herb, anise, blackberry and wild berry fruit is tight, firm, tannic and well-structured, picking up depth and length on the finish. 7,650 cases made.

    Bright ruby red, nose of big beautiful berries, smooth port like consistency with a long beautiful finish. A really great wine for the price point. Hats off to the Chappellet family.

    Forget the notes on this one, but recall a big, deep dark Napa Cab. Tell-tale black fruits, good ripeness, clean throughout.

    Intense flavors of blueberries and plums. Deep ruby red color, good body and nice texture. Smooth finish.

    Nice clarity, rich inky-violet coloration with a pleasant intensity on the nose highlighting blackberry, cassis and pencil lead. Flavor is nicely fruit-forward of darker berries, nice structure, and some pucker on the finish with strong tannins. A nicely balanced cabernet that will benefit from another year or two of cellaring.

    This closed and very young beauty is only approachable after a long decanting, 4+ hours. Berry and toasty oak with vanilla tones. Big and tannic but not overly so. This needs a couple of years before it will truly be at its peak

    Very big and rich, with bright red fruit, licorice, and blackberry. Medium tannins suggest this will is drinking well now but capable of additional bottle age. Tough to resist now.

    Very, very nice - strong fruit, full complex flavor, yet VERY smooth. Very nice.

Founded in 1967, Chappellet is one of the most established family-owned wineries in California. The portfolio of wines is still remarkably focused on what got them where they are today. Estate-grown Chardonnay and Cabernet are still the benchmarks here. Sited on the slopes of Pritchard Hill overlooking Lake Hennessey on the eastern side of Rutherford, neighbors include renowned producers Colgin, David Arthur, Girard, Long and Ovid.
