"Blended from the traditional Bordeaux varietals, including our own coveted grapes, the Chappellet Mountain Cuvee Proprietor's Blend builds on our five decades of experience crafting great Napa County mountain-grown wines. Each component varietal in the cuvée contributes to nuances that complement each other. The result is a complex array of aromas and flavors that deliver pure pleasure in a glass. Made for more near-term enjoyment, this is the wine to choose when you're looking for vivid, mouthfilling fruit flavors.
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, mouth-coating 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." - Winemaker
