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.

Our go to pseudo sommelier and both bar tenders gave this one 2 thumbs up, while encouraging us to make this our 1st up vineyard next time we are in Napa. Perched high in the mountains, a super smooth, slightly jammy Jen is produced. That said, all I can think about is the beauty next to me…blessed
