Ripe plum, strawberry and pomegranate aromas rise from the glass, followed by hints of cigar box and baking spice. Sweet, round and viscous on the palate, our Merlot offers dark flavors of black cherry and molasses, complemented by cola and liquer undertones. The luscious mouthfeel is perfectly offset by a finish of creamy oak and brown sugar toast.

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: Merlot

Merlot shares many of the same profile descriptors as Cabernet Sauvignon including plum, blackberry, chocolate and mocha. Bordeaux's Right Bank, such as in Pomerol and St.-Emilion, is the traditional home to this red grape, but it is grown all over the world. Merlot is either bottled on its own or is blended with other red grapes.
