Chappellet Vineyard Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2019

Excl. tax

A benchmark for the long-lived hillside wines of the Napa Valley; full of structure and aging potential, yet seductively forward in its concentrated varietal character....

...The dry, rocky soils of Pritchard Hill produce small, intensely flavorful grapes. Crop thinning allows for full, even ripening & elevates flavor complexity.

Tasting Notes
Luxuriously dark and concentrated, this wine displays alluring aromas of
cassis, dark cherry, spiced plum, chocolate, and sweet baking spices, with
hints of toasted oak, cardamom, clove and vanilla from French oak aging.
On the palate, this wine is voluptuously full bodied, with a lavish structure
and supple tannins framing the ripe dark berry and black currant flavors. As
it glides to a long resonant finish, sophisticated hints of espresso, cedar cigar
box, anise and fresh herbs emerge, adding nuance and depth.

Growing Season & Harvest
The 2019 growing season began with cool, rainy weather throughout winter

and spring, which delayed budbreak slightly and resulted in a robust crop and

vigorous canopies. To create the desired vine balance, we thinned leaves and

clusters extensively, doing as many as three fruit-dropping passes depending on

the needs of each vine. The weather remained temperate throughout summer,

followed by perfectly timed warm weather in October. As a result, our early

ripening grapes yielded wines with dazzling aromatics, lovely energy and pure,

fresh flavors, while our later-ripening varieties provided gorgeous color and

concentration, with supple tannins and rich, soaring flavors.
