Site Blog: purely domestic wine report Aroma: sun-warmed black fruits, chocolate, violet, rock salt and tapenade kissed with verbena and the faintest hint of clementine zest Palate: already enormously rich and dense with complex layering of chocolate, black fig, gooey medjools, blue plum and espresso Impression: in what should be currently fairly angular youth, the PHEV already displays rare precociousness that continues to evolve in the glass. showing beautifully polished tannins, depth and balanced intensity. It is still very early for 2006 Napa Cabernet, but as it stands right now, PHEV is my benchmark

About This Producer


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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
