Beautiful deep purple color. Hammy and full bodied. Great finish. Gets better the longer it's open.

This is a great Bordeaux blend from California. Well balanced and fruit forward with cedar, chocolates and coffee notes.

Good right out of the bottle, and better as it opens up and shows some tannins (30 minutes).

Still young and will benefit from a year or two of bottle time.

Good by itself or with food. A great sipping wine.

Delicious and yummy. I love these Bordeaux blends.

A blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 13% Malbec, 9% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc. 73% Napa Valley 27% Sonoma County.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Medium Ruby. All Bordeaux grapes included in the Cuvée. Fruit forward. Jammy. Blackberry. Needs some time to mature.

Well balanced blend from Chappellet. Nothing over the top or spectacular about this blend but it is very enjoyable and drinkable. Fruit forward with some spice on the back end that integrates well with the balanced oak. Subtle tannins and light acidity. Drink now or hold for a few years but nothing long term.

Well balanced red blend. Opened it about 30 minutes before dinner. Some cedar, red fruit, and sage. Delicious.
