A nice go-to wine, popular with both the "big boy" crowd and those who prefer something more subtle and food-friendly. A nice long finish. Read more

A big red at 14.8% alcohol. Not as much finesse and subtlety as the bordeauxs that this is crafted after. But went well with our steak. Read more

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.

A big, beautifully broad and soft Cabernet that will impress the most esteemed palate. This wine is produced in a distinctively superior fashion, making it the perfect food wine. It is balanced and contains rich flavors of currants, blackberry and chocolate, with a big vanilla nose. Enjoy with a rich beef or lamb based dish; this is simply one of those wines with which you cannot go wrong.

One evening, Tom and I decided to throw a couple of T-Bones on the grill and open this bottle of Cab. Tasting with the Premier crew can be an exhilarating and insightful experience. We have a fanatical tendency to dissect a wine down to its atomic structure. Absorbed in an analytical state of mind, we found ourselves expressing metaphors like sweet cassis and dark currants laced with exotic brown spices and the friendly, fruit-driven style it possessed. Lost in our enthusiasm, we completely forgot about the steaks! I highly recommend this wine with grilled foods, but also suggest that dinner be prepared before the first glass is poured.

Firm and intense, with a mix of mineral, pebble, dried currant, sage and spice. Full-bodied and complex, ending with fine structure and chewy tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2014.

The Mountain Cuveacute;e is a blend of softer and more developed lots of Cabernet Sauvignon with Chappelletrsquo;s rich, weighty Merlot. The result is an incredibly aromatic nose, rich mid-palate and lengthy finish.

Created to be accessible, fun and ready to drink, this scrumptious Cab is much more, and with a price tag that brings the great taste of Chappellet within reach of ordinary wine drinkers. This is a full-bore, intensely fruitful Cabernet packed with ripe currant, plump and blueberry flavors, backed with cocoa and sweet oak accents, and smooth, velvety tannins.

You can call this Chappelletrsquo;s everyday claret, but thatrsquo;s an insult to a wine of this quality. It shows classic Napa structure, with firm tannins and rich acidity, and a deep core of black cherry, black currant and oak flavors. Itrsquo;s delicious now, and should develop for a couple of years.

Winemaker's Notes:

Complex aromas of cherry blackberry and cedar mingle with bay leaf and a touch of white pepper on the nose. Subtle notes of oak and baking spice add sweetness to the aromas. On the palate a nice blend of red and black fruits is followed by delicate herbal tones and hints of earth and forest floor. Soft integrated tannins give structure and supple texture to the palate making the wine immensely enjoyable even in its youth.
