Chappellet Chardonnay Napa Valley 2010
Blended around a core of Cabernet, but also includes a significant amount of Merlot to add suppleness and fruit. The 2010 Cervantes is dark and concentrated, with aromas of ripe cherry, berry fruit, cola, cedar and coffee, with supporting notes of sweet oak, anise and cassis. This full-bodied wine is packed with radiant tannins, mouthfilling sweet fruit, chocolate and baking spices. 2010 has produced a cellar-worthy Cervantes that will gain complexity with additional aging.
Editorial Reviews for Chappellet Chardonnay Napa Valley
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
Very big nose with flowery, and fruit hits. A Big wine for a Napa Valley Chardonnay--more oaky vanilla or ML butter than I normally like. Also, not as acidic as I normally like. The best part is how it fills the mouth with flavor. This is going to go well with tonights roasted chicken. US$24.99 at Wine Club in Santa Ana

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.

This effort is similar to Chappellets past vintages, with citrus and tropical fruit flavors, tastefully accented by oak and brightened with a squeeze of lemony acidity. - S.H. Wine Enthusiast. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2010 Chappellet Chardonnay 750ml
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.

A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2010 Chappellet Chardonnay 750ml
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.

The 2010 CERVANTES is dark and concentrated, with lovely aromas of ripe cherry, berry fruit, cola, cedar and coffee. Supporting notes of sweet oak, anise and cassis add brightness and nuance to the nose. On the palate, this full-bodied wine is packed with radiant tannins, mouthfilling sweet fruit, chocolate and baking spices. Though eminently drinkable now for its flashy youthfulness, 2010 has also produced a cellar-worthy CERVANTES that will gain complexity with additional aging.
