Always a delight. Titus can't make bad wine, EVER. One of my favorite Napa wines, and an amazing QPR.

Thanks to my brother Woody for turning me on to his friends the Cappellet's and their very excellent wine. This one is (as all their cabs are) is complex, great up front but with a terrific finish and well..damn good. I'm not going to go all Robert Parker on the description but the high concentration of Merlot softens the tannins and makes the fruit and leather come through slowly but really well. As I write I'm neglecting a very attractive brunette who's seriously reconsidering her choice of dinner companion due to my enthusiasm for the Chappellet Mountain Cuvée but hey..good wine cannot be ignored. Not apparently can she. So I'm making the right choice and ending the rating.

Created for Disney, this fittingly shows a bit of magic. Black currant, blackberry, prominent anise w/ vanillin. Really delivers without overwhelming- spice box and anise on the palate rather than a fruit bomb. Impressive!

Loads of ripe bing cherries, black cassis and plums. Oak is presented but perfectly integrated with the wine. Cedar box and tobacco leaves with a hint of leather. Great structure, but the tannin is not delicate enough. Slight sweet finish. Pairs really well with the tapas. Overall a solid and delicious wine. 14.5% alc. 2015 vintage

Merlot, Cab Sauv, Malbec, PV and Cab Franc. Nice. Well balanced. You can't go wrong with Chappellet

Pyrizinic, weighty and dark fruited. Needs some time to even out but fun nonetheless.
