Sweet aromas of berries and red fruits; bold, fruity, complex classic Napa cab flavors; long finish, but a tad hot and rough.
External Reviews for Chappellet Signature Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Napa
While I enjoy many styles of Cabernet, from opulent to tight and Bordeaux-like, the 2006s struck me as being exquisitely balanced, rich without being heavy, and distinctive in reflecting where they're grown... Assertive herb, anise, blackberry and wild berry fruit is tight, firm, tannic and well-structured, picking up depth and length on the finish. Best from 2010 through 2016. 7,650 cases made. �J.L.
