Chappellet Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Signature 2003
The nose opens with aromas of concentrated black berry and cassis accented by spicy cedar and vanilla. Sweet chocolate and flashy oak notes add opulence and complexity to this fully ripe and extracted Cabernet Sauvignon. Big, rich Cabernet characters of dark fruits, herb and cedar expand on the palate. Firm but balanced tannins give structure and texture to the mouth as the flavors flow seamlessly into a long chocolaty/berry finish.
