Dark red purple with a near black core. Big bosomy nose of black plum, black currant, and mineral char. Full bodied palate echoes the nose adding red apple peel and juicy blackberry with medium plus acidity and medium tannins. Finish is moderately long and sustains the palate. Chappellet continues to impress with this entry level Bordeaux style blend that’s ready for cookouts, fine dining, cigars, or just a good by-the-glass sip. Drink now through 2024.

Bordeaux-Style Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (68%), Merlot (28%), Petite Verdot (2%) and Cabernet Franc (2%). Dark ruby color with purple highlights. Brilliant nose of plush red fruit, graphite and high quality oak. Bold red and black fruit flavors with hints of earth, cocoa, dried herbs and spices. Very long and Smokey finish. Bold, complex and concentrated. Tannins are very smooth. Nice choice, Kasey!

A nice by-the-glass wine for dinner tonight. Deep inky purple, black fruit, nice acidity and minerality. Solid blend with strong youthful tannins.

Great red blend! Clean, dry and very vanilla forward but not in an overly sweet way. Would be happy to drink again!
