Cabernet Sauvignon 76%, Malbec 11%, Petit Verdot 4% & Merlot 9%

WINERY NOTES:

The depth and complexity that mark the spectacular 2018 growing season are fully on display in this wine, with head-turning aromatics of black currant, cherry, plum and violet leaping out of the glass before revealing subtler notes of cinnamon, clove, espresso, cocoa and anise. On the palate, the tannins are large, yet velvety, supporting voluptuous layers of blackberry, bing cherry, cassis and baking spices. Oak-inspired notes of caramelized brown sugar and molasses add additional nuance, while leading to a plush, lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim:

93 points - James Suckling
"Lots of blackcurrant and blueberry with violet and boysenberry. Some chocolate, too. Full-bodied with lightly dusty tannins that give a special texture and beauty to the wine. Flavorful and intense at the finish. Better after 2023."

93 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot and 5% Malbec. It was harvested from September 18 to October 30, and the alcohol weighed in at 14.5%. Deep garnet-purple in color, exuberant notes of warm plums, ripe black and red currants and black cherries come bounding out of the glass with suggestions of cedar chest, unsmoked cigars and beef drippings. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is simply singing with juicy black fruits and velvety tannins, finishing long with some baking spice hints coming through. Open for business now, this wine can easily be cellared for 20 years or more. Chappellet has done an amazing job with capturing the spirit of this bright, vibrant vintage. These wines absolutely shimmer with energy! 93+"

92 points - Jeb Dunnuck "This larger production cuvťe from this estate is always a winner, and the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature checks in as 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, and 5% Malbec. Beautiful creme de cassis, camphor, toasted spice, leather, and earthy tobacco notes all emerge from the glass, and this beauty is medium to full-bodied, supple, and seamless on the palate, with loads of up-front appeal."
