Chappellet Cervantes Mtn Cuv10 2010
The nose delivers an early blast of crushed fresh herbs, black currant fruit and very well-judged oak. Well-balanced and nearly seamless in the mouth with a slightly polished feel. The tannins are here but the almost gauzy blanket of black berry and plum fruit manages to conceal them right through until the finish. Even on the finish there is a sweetness to these tannins, an attractive gentleness that keeps them from detracting from the light, gently herbal and earthy core of lingering black fruit. Fairly large scaled yet elegant, this has the balance to age well beyond it's price point but is attractive today for it's fine, understated style. 89ptsAdd winemaker's notes

Very aromatic with heather top notes over a base of lemon oil, butter, smoky grilled peaches, mango and hickory smoked aromas. Smooth, soft and opulent in the mouth, the low acidity here lends this a sweetness in the mouth that accentuates the ripe flavors of apple, pear and pineapple. Plenty of nutty and honey tones add complexity on the midpalate, with a touch of herbs and some waxiness popping on the moderately long, lemon citrusy finish which shows some heat. 89pts Acidity: Medium Low Perceived Sweetness: Low Oak: Medium Low Spicy Flavors: Low Savory Flavors: Medium Fruity Flavors: Medium Intensity of Flavor: Medium High Weight in Mouth: Medium High

The nose is brimming with floral and tropical notes including ripe pineapple, guava and lemon zest. Hints of brown sugar and nutmeg spice from the barrel aging add complexity to the fruit. On the palate, this wine is toned and vibrant, with flavors of tropical fruit, alongside layers of quince and nectarine. French oak and creaminess from the malolactic fermentation contribute nuances of vanilla bean and crème brulée, with crisp acidity adding structure and length throughout. - WineryWine StatisticsHarvested- September 27-October 8, 2010Brix at Harvest- 24-24.6° Alcohol- 14.9% TA- 0.61 g/100 mlpH- 3.59 ** SOLD OUT **
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature is a dark, mysterious beauty endowed with considerable depth and richness. Mocha, chocolate, spices and plums fuse together gracefully as this soft, supple wine takes shape in the glass. I very much like the imme... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Chappellet Mountain Cuvee is called Cervantes in the 2010 vintage, however it stays true to the previous blends - a core of Cabernet with a significant amount of Merlot with a bit of Petit Verdot and Malbec rounding out the blend.
Combines richness with density and a tight core of pear, melon, green apple and light cedary oak flavors. This is raw and young, so give it time. The finish is complex, layered and nuanced. Drink now through 2018. -JL Wine Spectator. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2010 Chappellet Chardonnay 750ml
Chappellet Cabernet is a benchmark for the long-lived hillside wines of the Napa Valley; full of structure and aging potential, yet seductively forward in its concentrated varietal character.
Good medium ruby-red. Inviting aromas of cassis, dark chocolate, mocha, licorice, tobacco and loam. Supple on entry, then ripe, suave and concentrated, with harmonious acidity framing the youthful currant, mocha and menthol flavors. A bit less giving today than the nose suggests but nicely sweet and sharply delineated. The firmly tannic, lively finish is a bit youthfully tough and in need of patience, but this cabernet offers outstanding potential.
Opening with expressive notes of blackberry, cherry and cassis, this wine is full-bodied and rich. Hints of chocolate and espresso layer with spicy oak for added complexity. Smooth tannins infused with ripe sweet fruit create a lush, supple texture. Rich waves of berry, spice and herbs create a lasting impression of finesse and structure in this Cabernet.
