2014 Chappellet 'Signature' Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Avg. Rating: 
(0)

A cuvée bearing Donn Chappellet's signature, in a sense this is their flagship wine. Folks, this wine is a GIVEAWAY, underpriced by about 50% compared to its peers. With a phenomenally dense core of blueberry and cassis fruit accented by that dusty, roasted earth Pritchard Hill component, and the tannin and acidity to serve it well in the cellar, it's tough to make a case for a better Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon at this price point. The 1969 model, made when these vines were offering their first produce, is considered one of the greatest wines ever made in the Napa Valley. How will the 2014, made with the same vines at age 47, be remembered? We suggest laying in a case and waiting to find out.

It's been 45 years since Donn and Molly Chappellet fell in love with the rolling hills overlooking Napa's Lake Hennessey. In 1967 they set up shop on Pritchard Hill inspired to craft age-worthy, and noteworthy, wines. Taking to heart the advice of André Tchelistcheff, they became among the first to exclusively plant on high-elevation slopes. Seems that André's training and instinct has served the wine world well as the rugged terroir of this location lends an intensity and depth to the finished wines. The generous legacy started by Donn and Molly now includes the second generation of Chappellets - all six children have a hand in continuing what their parents started. Their preservation efforts - from composting, to solar energy to water conservation and organic farming - are "embracing the romance of Pritchard Hill" and ensuring it, and the exemplary wines they produce, will be around for many generations to come.
