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

Vibrant aromas of blackberry, black cherry, dried fruit, and baking spices jump from the glass. In the mouth the wine is rich in dark fruit flavors, with hints of mocha and roasted coffee beans. Full, fairly big tannins are well integrated in the body and fruit character.

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.

Chappellet makes outstanding Cabs, and this is one of two high-end bottlings it makes every year. Like the Signature Cabernet, the Mountain Cuveacute;e is made from hillside vineyards, but is styled with softer tannins so it is approachable on release. Itrsquo;s also a little lower-priced. This vintage shows bountiful aromas of blueberry, baking spices and kirsch, leading to layers of mint and black pepper. The nose is big and rich, suggesting the formidable character of this wine. A textured mouthfeel and weighty mid-palate are softened by notes of black currant, raspberry and cedar.

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.

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.
