An astringent berry quality in the initial aromas. Opens to strawberry tart cherry and evergreen. A very young flavor front leads to big berry potential. Nice young, but I would still lay down a few more years. Has the feel that it would age rather well. A fabulous pairing for this Easter's smoked ham dinner. Rounds out after an hour's opening. Then a much smoother luscious bbqd blackberry cobbler emerges.

Remains outstanding. Solid contender for sub-$30 WOTY.

Chappellet wine dinner. I've not had much of their wines and wanted to see if they are worth a visit when we are out for our yearly Napa trip in February!

A very good value out of Napa. $30-35. Pop and pour stuff. Toasted french bread, blueberry pie, blackberries, plums, cola. Tannins are plush.

Very impressed with Chappellet, up and down their portfolio. The nose is powerful with Bing cherries and rose petals. On the palette, the wine presents like a reduction. Sweet notes of a balsamic reduction, light maple and black fruits. Aggressive tannins provide a rock-like structure. This bad boy has the stuffing for cellaring.
I've under clubbed the score for no good reason...
