One nose, creamy, ruby, dark and mid fruits, big red florals, violets with distinct strawberries & raspberries rounded things out. The palate has creamy dark fruits of; blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries & raspberries. Liquid violets, soft, dusty, big tannin structure, dry black earth, crushed dry rocks, leather, touch of cola, dry red florals, mint and touch of herbs. The finish is lean, dry, earthy with good acidity. Wine needs 10 years before I'd open a bottle. Photo tour of; Chappellet vineyard, tastings area, estate building and barrel room. Phillip Corallo-Titu is their Winemaker since 1990.

Huge, not the most balanced, heavy on the alcohol.

2014 pretty wine. Beautiful. Not a lot of stuffing. Lots of tannins showing very drying

First time having anything by this producer and I (and everyone at the table) loved it. Beautifully balanced on the palate with lovely notes of star anise and baking spices. Looking forward to visiting this selection, and others, again at another time.

Lots of character, purple fruit, licorice and more. Still seems young but getting better as it opens up. Could be I was spoiled with the 99 couple of weeks ago, but life is good today!
