2013 opened at Eagles Tailgate vs Buffalo! Another Win! The 2013 is amazing! Great structure with soft fleshy tannins. Good body and mouthfeel. I think it will out shine even the 2012. From my cellar. Thanks Rick!

Beautiful complex Cabernet from Chappellet's 2013 vintage. Black fruit and coffee aroma with a taste of black cherry and blueberry underscored by tannins that are not at all overpowering. Enjoying this on a Friday night after a long week!!

Excellent finish, muted fruit sheds light on the wonderful tannins. Very high recommendation.

A bit tightly wound at the moment. Those tannins are grippy- but wonderful complexity of aromas whispering out of a dense core. Would love to revisit once it grows up a bit.

Steak night on vacation in the outer banks.
Having an Idaho vs Napa cab comparison. We went to Idaho for a wedding in June and purchased some local wines.
2014 Split Rail Winery vs 2013 Chappellet Napa Valley cab.
This is more elegant and balanced compared to the split rail cab. Dark fruit, tobacco, and earthy notes on the palate. This was $65 vs the $33 Split Rail cab price point.
