    A sustainably produced Napa Cab from a top producer that's under $55? Believe it! The "Signature" from Chappellet is just what you'd expect with inky, juicy, rich black fruit. You get a crushed rock mineral note and a little toasted vanilla from the barrel, which comes across as subtle instead of the dominant note. It's lush but balanced. The structure is there, but no one part feels out of whack. The tannin is big and ripe but feels velvety on the palate. The acidity is vibrant and gives the wine a freshness. The quality in fruit and wine making is apparent. This is a superb bottle of wine and one any lover of California Cabernet should try.

    This wine possesses power, concentration and refinement that would not be out of place in a $500 bottling from one of Chappellet's neighbors. The 2015 Signature, comprised of exclusively Pritchard Hill estate fruit, might be one of the best deals ever in modern Napa Cabernet. Bold, brassy saturated fruit, cassis, red and black currant, plum conserve, graphite, charred oak, cigar box and exotic spice. A rich, decadent mid-palate is balanced by classic varietal tannin and acidity that gives vitality and freshness to a concentrated and complex wine. Generosity of fruit to drink now but the stuffing to last a couple decades in the cellar. This is the real deal in Napa Cab.

    This rich, flashy, dark Cabernet has all of the toasty oak and dark currant fruit to impress on the very first sip. It also has real Cabernet structure underneath with real power for your next big steak meal. If you like big cab, this is a great choice. Fire up the grill, put on some big ribeyes and enjoy this very good Cabernet!

    The search for amazing values in Napa Valley Cabernets has become an arduous task. With so many people jumping into the lucrative game to cash in on skyrocketing prices, buyers can end up wasting a lot of dollars on subpar efforts. Chappellet represents the opposite. Winemaker Phillip Corallo and viticulturalist David Pro have been working together for over 25 years, and the quality of the wine they make is remarkable. It shows deep, rich flavors of red currants, pepper, mocha, roses and cigar tobacco with velvety tannins and great acid for aging. The balance and integration are superb, and at prices that make it a comparative steal. This is what California wine is about.
