Chappellet Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

$69.99

96+ Points  Parker                       It's tough to make a case for a better Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon at this price point.  The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon has been Chappellet's flagship wine for more than four decades. It is a benchmark for the long-lived hillside wines of the Napa Valley. Location on Pritchard Hill is everything as the neighbors of this property include Colgin and Bryant Family. The wine has a phenomenally dense core of blueberry and cassis fruit accented by that dusty, roasted earth component, and the tannin and acidity to serve it well in the cellar. 96+ Points Robert Parker: "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature has a very deep garnet-purple color and opens with wonderfully expressive notes of warm cassis, baked plums, black raspberries and kirsch with suggestions of underbrush, lilacs and chocolate box. Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals layers of red and black berries with stunning freshness and an approachable, grainy texture, finishing long and earthy."

Tight and tannic, but not closed for business. Able to really enjoy now, but you get the feeling there’s a huge payoff in 10 - 15 years. Fruit and structure are amazing after 3 hours, but my lips are stuck to my gums from puckering tannin.

A little on the younger side but excellent structure.
