Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Blend of Cab Sauv, Cab Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot & Malbec, made by 30 year Chappellet winemaker Phillip Titus. Deep Ruby, purple edges, youthful aromas of black fruit, spices, floral and flinty notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry and black cherry with some vanilla and tobacco and herbal notes. Vivid acidity & firm tight tannins with long finish ending with a youthful character, a bit young, should benefit from bottle aging.

First Chappellet wine. Dark color. Like violets and dark crimson rose petals with a sheen and sparkle. Smells ripe with plums and fresh herbs. Flavor is classic Napa, but complex and silky smooth like an MJ fall-away. Very drinkable and soft for a 2018. It’s got a dark chocolate and cola element as well. It’s very good, just expected it to be a bit more dynamic. It’s good with food.
