Winemaker Notes

This alluring Bordeaux-varietal blend displays aromas of concentrated fruit and spice, with layers of red currant, cassis, cinnamon, vanilla and clove, as well as hints of earthy forest floor, wild sage and sweet toasty oak. On the palate, plush, impeccably balanced tannins carry the lush red and black fruit flavors to an elegant, lingering finish.

Blend: 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 9% Petit Verdot, 7% Malbec, 4% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

Tasting Panel
Blended from 44% Cabernet Sauvignon; 36% Merlot; and smaller amounts of Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Cab Franc, this red is angular and quite focused. Concentrated tarry notes arrive early with a swath of blackberry preserves and brown-sugared apple skins; as the wine opens up, it remains sensationally plush while bringing in flavors of clove and sage.

COMMENTARY: The 2019 Chappellet Mountain Cuvée is the quintessential Napa Valley red wine. This blend of Bordeaux grape varieties is well-built and lasting on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows up with deep aromas and flavors of black fruit, dried leaves, and hints of flowers. Pair it with grilled lamb and enjoy! (Tasted: May 19, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
