Chappellet 2019 Signature Cabernet Sauvignon
Luxuriously dark and concentrated, this wine displays alluring aromas of cassis, dark cherry, spiced plum, chocolate, and sweet baking spices, with hints of toasted oak, cardamom, clove, and vanilla from French oak aging. On the palate, this wine is voluptuously full bodied, with a lavish structure and supple tannins framing the ripe dark berry and blackcurrant flavors. As it glides to a long resonant finish, sophisticated hints of espresso, cedar cigar box, anise, and fresh herbs emerge, adding nuance and depth.
Composition: 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, 8% Malbec, 3% Merlot
