Chappellet 2017 Mountain Cuvee
This lush and layered Bordeaux blend begins with alluring fruit-driven aromas of cherry, currant and plum, as well as sophisticated undercurrents of graphite, cedar, clove and nutmeg. The berry and spice notes are echoed on the round, mouthcoating palate, where they mingle with hints of black tea, vanilla and savory herbs. An underpinning of tannins provides weight, structure and impressive length to the finish.
Blend: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 8% Malbec, 6% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc
