An attractive array of blackberry, smoke, dark chocolate, and bay leaf aromas leads to a lustrous, layered wine. Rich on the palate with a velvet texture, the spicy, ripe, black fruits are beautifully integrated with the oak, tannins, and acidity.

Fresh, vibrant and tightly wound, with a citrus edge to the green apple flavors. Full-bodied, ending with a dash of herb and smoke. Best from 2012 through 2018.

Inviting aromas of apple fruit and lusty, appealing buttery, toasty oak. Handsome blend of apple, peach, pear and vanilla flavors on the well-rounded palate. Finish displays an engaging perfume with spicy accents.

One of the finest offerings from Chappellet I have tasted in years, this 1996 Chardonnay exhibits attractive buttery, honeyed fruit, and spicy, toasty oak aromas. An intensely-flavored, medium to full-bodied wine with high quality subtle oak, excellent purity, and good texture, this Chardonnay should be drunk over the next 1ndash;2 years, although it may last longer given its structure and depth. Bravo to Chappellet!

With apple and pear flavors and some oak, this is a clean Chard with mineral overtones. Nothing really stands out or clobbers you sidewise. Itrsquo;s just a well put-together wine, tasteful and understated.

A fancy, rich Chardonnay, made in the California style. Chappellet has a good track record of producing 90-plus Chardonnays, and this rsquo;09 continues that tradition. Itrsquo;s rich in pineapple jam, Asian pear and sweet, oaky vanilla flavors, balanced with good acidity and a hint of minerality.

Tasted in the Spring of 2009, this Chard was immature, marked by fresh fruit acidity and flavors, as well as unintegrated oak. But itrsquo;s quite good, and just needs time to allow the grilled pineapple, cregrave;me brucirc;leacute;e and buttered toast flavors to come together with the alcohol. Best 2010ndash;2013.

Winemaker's Notes:

2007 was a near-perfect vintage for Chardonnay with optimal weather throughout the growing season and most importantly, at harvest. Like its Sonoma sibling, we believe this bottling of Napa Valley Chardonnay is one of our best. Its a voluptuous wine busting the seams with ultra-ripe stone, pear and pineapple fruits, with hunger-arousing aromas of custard, crme brule and toasty vanilla oak. Spicy pear flavors are plush and round on the palate with a thread of acidity bringing lift and support to this sinfully rich and satisfying wine. 900 cases produced.
