Sipping Fine Wine

For more than 4 decades, the Chappellet family has been crafting wines from fruit cultivated on the steep, rocky slopes of Napa Valley's Pritchard Hill. Aged for 8 months on French oak, (33% new) in its lees. Aromas of ripe stone fruits, citrus, honey and oaky scents. On the palate layers of fruit, apple, lemon and peach with balanced acidity and gentle toasty oak. Lingering smooth finish ending with fruit and oak tones, a bit creamy. Very well done. A joy to drink.

Smells like honey/sugar. Surprising acidity on the palette. Didn’t seem very well balanced
