Chappellet Cabernet Sauvignon Signature Napa Valley 2021  - First Bottle

Reviews

94+ Jeb Dunnuck -
Leading off the Cabernet Sauvignon releases, the 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature is a larger production release and is 79% Cabernet Sauvignon and nearly equal portions of Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Merlot. Smoky black fruits, graphite, crushed stone, and tobacco notes give way to a medium to full-bodied, concentrated, powerful 2021 offering ample mid-palate depth, a layered, textured, balanced mouthfeel, building tannins, and a gorgeous finish. It's a brilliant bottle of wine that will benefit from short-term cellaring and have over two decades of longevity.

Chappellet's benchmark cabernet sauvignon is the picturesque hillside fruit and an exemplary showcase of the 'upper Oakville' terroir. This wine shows its usual full body characteristics: ripe but streamlined dark fruits, plum, cassis, dark chocolate, and supple minerality. It's packing some mountain tannins, but a good decant will quickly lift this wine to drinkability.

About the Producer

The Chappellet's romance with Pritchard Hill began when Donn Chappellet first glimpsed the mountain's spectacular vistas in the late 1960s. Inspired by the notion that 'Bacchus loves the hills' and following the advice of Andre Tchelistcheff, he settled his family on the rocky eastern slopes of the Napa Valley. There, on Pritchard Hill's serene hillsides the Chappellet family has cultivated their mountain vineyard to produce some of the Napa Valley's most acclaimed Bordeaux varietal wines.
