I was able to taste three wines from Chappellet. Starting with the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature, it sports a vivid purple color as well as a stunningly pure bouquet of crème de cassis, vanilla oak, spice box, and graphite. Deep, full-bodied, with incredible purity of fruit, this beauty has no hard edges, offering beautiful overall balance and a great finish. As with most 2016s, it has a certain accessibility and upfront charm, but it will be even better with short-term cellaring and keep for two decades. This beauty is worthy of a multi-case purchase.
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. (LPB) 96+
Chappellet's 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature is powerful, dense and super-expressive. Mocha, bittersweet chocolate, spice, new leather and menthol wrap around a core of beautifully layered, dark-fleshed fruit. Ample, creamy and resonant on the palate, the 2016 has a lot to offer. Best of all, the Signature remains one of the very finest values readers will find in Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. (AG)
