Tasting Notes

Praise from Antonio Galloni: "Quality is on the rise at Chappellet, one of the most historic wineries in Napa Valley. Winemaker Philip Corallo-Titus credits new state of the art optical sorting equipment for much of the upswing in quality. Corallo-Titus adds that the recently built new winery also allows him to keep temperatures low during aging and therefore use less SO2. All I could think while tasting these wines is "What took so long?" Surely the Chappellets have had the means to make these investments for years, if not decades. Then again, running a multi-generational family winery with many stakeholders can't possibly be easy. Still, there is no question the newer wines at Chappellet are terrific." (10/2015)

    I get a lot of customers who come into the store looking for a bottle of Napa Cab for a dinner they are on their way to. At $30 Napa Cab can be really hit and miss, but this Bordeaux blend is an absolute home run. This wine has tons of intensive fruit, is totally upfront an accessible, and an exceptionally balanced bottle that will wow the table from the moment it is opened. I can't stress enough the quality here, but anyone who loves full-bodied reds from Napa should really consider this a house wine whenever having guests for dinner. If you're looking to wow someone with a bottle, this is a total bullseye.

    All five Bordeaux varietals are blended harmoniously in this dangerously drinkable Chappellet Mountain Cuvée. Chappellet is famous for Bordeaux varietals, with It's high elevation terroir on the Eastern side of Napa, on Pritchard Hill. Here the grapes achieve maximum ripeness, having access to the morning sunlight coming over the Vaca mountain range. Medium bodied yet fruit forward, this wine delights with luscious flavors and aromas of ripe strawberry, cassis and blueberry, caressed by a soft tannin.
