2008 Chappellet Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Signature - USA, California, Napa Valley (11/6/2012)
Cabernet Sauvignon 77% Malbec 9% Petit Verdot 5% Merlot 9%
Opened this wine in celebration of the end of campaign 2012 which has been going for - it would seem - YEARS.
Popped in cellar to breathe for several hours. Then warm up for a little less than an hour.
Dark red in the glass with lumpy sweet cherry notes on the nose. Flavors of dark dark cherry framed by a nice tannic dustiness and a hint of…strawberry? or raspberry?
Very tasty, will wait another year or so to open the next one. (91 pts.)
