One of the bottles we brought back from Napa. Unbelievably approachable at pop and pour. Brambly dark fruit notes on the nose, mainly earthy blackberries. Nice texture. Not very tannic. Finishes with raspberries, cedar, and overall, quite plush. Prefer this over their signature cab I think...then again, that bottle needs more air. Would be fun to try this “Las Piedras” against a Beckstoffer Las Piedras 🤔

Red blended wine. Aromas of wild berry, creme de cassis, anise, espresso with subtler notes of cedar, sage, smoke and spicy oak. Vibrant flavors of blueberry and blackberry with mouthcoating richness.

This vineyard is exceptional year in and year out. The Chappellet's have long been the stalwart of the vineyard. Great Jon Marc and Cyril.

A lovely floral nose. Deep purple in color. Orange blossom, mint, red plum, blackberry, ripe blueberry, coffee, chocolate. Fruits went tart and earthy on the palate: blueberry leaf, allspices, clove, and nutmeg. Med+ finish with a tangy tone. Elevated acidity, med+ levels of medium-grained tannins. Over 50% new French oak + a bit of Hungarian oak. A blend with Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Cab Franc. Finishes with a tangy tone.
