    Winemaker's Notes:

    "Elegantly styled with a wonderful sense of balance, it offers a complex core of currant, anise, sage and a splash of vanilla and mocha, finishing with ripe, fine-grained tannins that flex their muscles on the finish. Best from 2006 through 2012."
    -Wine Spectator

    The "Signature" Cabernet Sauvignon has been Chappellet's flagship wine for more than three decades. It is a benchmark for the long-lived hillside wines of the Napa Valley; full of structure and ageing potential, yet seductively forward in its concentrated varietal character. Collectors covet vintages from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.

    This wine opens with inviting ripe fruit aromas of blackberries, black cherry and plum. Chocolate, espresso and oak spice add depth and richness. Background notes of black pepper and cedar add complexity to the nose. Flavors of sweet berries mingle with anise, coffee and toasted French oak. The texture is rich and mouth-filling, with firm, integrated tannins adding structure and finesse to the palate. The closing notes are long and lingering, with flavors of concentrated fruit and spice.
