chappellet cabernet sauvignon (signature) 2019 750ml

$97.99

THE WINE

The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon has been our foundational wine for more than five decades. It is a benchmark for the long-lived hillside wines of the Napa Valley; full of structure and aging potential, yet seductively forward in its concentrated varietal character. The dry, rocky soils of Pritchard Hill produce small, intensely flavorful grapes. Crop thinning allows for full, even ripening and elevates flavor complexity.

TASTING NOTES

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 black currant 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.

 

BLEND

77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, 8% Malbec, 3% Merlot

 

CRITICAL ACCLAIM

JS95, James Suckling

"This is very complex, with blackcurrants, tobacco and cedar. Some sandalwood and terra-cotta, too. Medium-to full-bodied with ultra-fine tannins that are creamy-textured and so long and pure. Attractive and complex. 77% cabernet sauvignon with petit verdot, malbec and merlot. So good now to drink, but will age beautifully. Drink or hold."

 

WW94, Wilfred Wong of Wine.com

"COMMENTARY: The 2019 Chappellet Signature Series Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic beauty. TASTING NOTES: This wine excels with aromas and flavors of black fruit, earth, dust, and oak. Enjoy with grilled, well-aged beef. (Tasted: May 22, 2022, San Francisco, CA)"

 

JD94, Jeb Dunnuck

"Always a smoking value that readers shouldn't miss, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature sports a dense purple color to go with beautiful cassis and blueberry-like fruits as well as bouquet garni, spice, and obvious, rocky mineral-like aromas and flavors. Rich and medium to full-bodied, with notable structure and good acidity, it's going to keep for two decades in cold cellars. It's a candidate for the best Napa Cabernet under $100. Best After 2022"

 

RP93, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature is a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, 8% Malbec and 3% Merlot. Deep garnet-purple colored, it leaps with open-knit notes of warm cassis and plum preserves, plus hints of tobacco leaf, bouquet garni and cedar chest. The medium to full-bodied palate is firm and crunchy with bags of bright fruit and a grainy texture, finishing lifted."
