Dark garnet in hue, this wine lifts itself out of the glass with aromas of ripe black cherries and dried herbs. On the tongue it tastes mostly of cherry, with a light hint of smokiness and blueberries that mixes with the mellow tannins for a very drinkable and easy mouthfeel. The long finish has hints of vanilla and other floral elements. This is an excellent food wine, and one thatrsquo;s worth breaking out at most any dinner, especially if you prefer to drink reds no matter what yoursquo;re eating. The softer tannins mean that it will not clash with more delicate foods, including even fish. If I had to pick an ideal dish to serve it with, I might try individual meat loaves with bacon crisps.

A stylish Bordeaux blend of Cabernet, Merlot and a dash of Cabernet Franc. Silky, pure mountain fruit with blackberry, red licorice and cedar weighing in full-bodied on the palate. Spicy tar and chewy tannins grip the finish, but the lingering impression is of mouthwatering fruit. Chappellet, a small winery by California terms, produces only 28,000 cases yearly, focusing mainly on Cabernet, Merlot and Chardonnay.
