4.5 Vivino Stars
Grown in the rocky, well-draining soils on Pritchard Hill, this is the OG of the famous hillside and a bottle under $60 is one you can’t afford to miss. Compare it to other Pritchard Hill stalwarts like Ovid ($300), Bryant ($650), and Colgin IX Estate ($630), and Chappellet’s voluptuous Cabernet with elegant, fine-grained tannins, is the obvious choice. At this price, run to this deal before it’s gone.
The 2018 Chappellet Signature Cabernet Sauvignon carries its Napa Valley banner well. This wine delivers attractive black fruit and oaky aromas and flavors that stay focused and long through the wine’s finish. Pair it with a grilled, well-marbled ribeye. (Tasted: November 16, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
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. Rating : 93+
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.
