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.

The complex, pure 2003 Chardonnay reveals notes of citrus oil, white peaches, pears, and flowers. Medium to full-bodied, with well-integrated oak, and a long finish, it is a beautifully crafted Chardonnay from a winery that has rebounded strongly over the last 5ndash;6 years. Drink it over the next 1ndash;2 years.

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!

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.

The youthful 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon's dense ruby/purple color is followed by classic aromas of creme de cassis, white flowers, crushed rocks, and a subtle touch of wood. Medium-bodied with a sweet attack, firm tannin, and beautiful purity, texture as well as length, it will benefit from another 1-3 years of cellaring, and should keep for 12-15+ years.

The way the tropical fruit flavors, high acidity, oak and creamy lees play off each other is just wonderful. Therersquo;s a density and weight that, combined with balance, make this a truly impressive wine.

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.

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.
