Chappellet Mountain Cuvee 2010
Dark and concentrated, with lovely aromas of ripe cherry, berry fruit, cola, cedar, and coffee. Supporting notes of sweet oak, anise, and cassis add brightness and nuance to the nose. On the palate, this full-bodied wine is packed with radiant tannins, mouthfilling sweet fruit, chocolate, and baking spices. A perfect complement to pastas, meats, stews, or a variety of cheeses.
50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 9% Petit Verdot, 6% Malbec. Vinted & bottled by Chappellet Vineyard, a vineyard owned by Chappellet Winery. The Chappellet family's romance with Pritchard Hill started more than four decades ago when Donn and Molly Chappellet first glimpsed its magnificent vista of forests and wildflower-filled meadows. Inspired by the notion that Bacchus loves the hills, the Chappellets followed the advice of renowned winemaker Andre Tchelistcheff and settled on Pritchard Hill's rocky slopes, becoming the first winery to plant vineyards exclusively on high-elevation hillsides.
