2007 Chappellet "Signature" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1052051 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is the winery’s basic Cabernet, but there’s nothing common about it. It’s dry and complex and moderately ageworthy, a hillside Cabernet that revels in its plush, firm tannins and ripe fruit. There’s a minerality that seems to come from the soil, with expressive blackberry, currant, chocolate and anise flavors. Really fine now after a decant, and should develop through this decade. Inner quote mark (10/2010)

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Mochachino scents of oak come first, followed by a blast of cherry fruit, the chocolate and cherry flavors expanding into a vast wine, crushed by a mineral stomp of tannin in the end. This is powerful without being superripe or hot, just impressively huge. Serve it to your power-hungry friends. Inner quote mark (12/2010)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very tightly wound, firm and taut, rich and full-bodied, offering intense mineral, blackberry, plum and currant fruit, with floral and sage hints. Ends with gripping tannins, but on the finish the flavors slowly unwind and expand. Needs time. Decant. (JL) Inner quote mark (9/2010)

91 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Blackberry, chocolate, and light toasted vanilla on the nose follows through to a full body, with round and soft tannins and a juicy finish. This is delicious, no need to wait. Inner quote mark (4/2011)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature exhibits a dense ruby/purple color along with sweet tannin, lots of blueberry, boysenberry and black currant fruit, a hint of spring flowers, a medium to full-bodied texture, and a supple, seamless personality. It should drink well for 15 or more years. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2010)

90 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark This wine sports much of the structural drama of its higher rated mate but comes with a less forceful fruit and thus finds its tannic muscularity grabbing a bit too much of the spotlight. It too will reward years of cellaring, and certainly is not a wine to pull out in the near future, but, for those who are inclined, this one has the build for a decade of patience. *One Star* Inner quote mark (8/2010)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Rich and satisfying, yet not at all flabby, with firm, almost gritty tannins. Effusive floral nose is inviting, and the bright fruit and acidity keep it energetic. 17.5/20 points (LM) Inner quote mark (12/2010)
