2009 Chappellet "Signature" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1078207 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature is another striking wine. The 2009 doesn’t have the bombastic fruit of the 2010, instead, it stands out for the silkiness of its tannin and pure length. The 2009 Signature is classy and refined from the very first taste. All the elements are beautifully in place in this mid-weight Cabernet. The 2009 is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Malbec, 9% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2012)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium ruby-red. Complex, varietally expressive aromas of cassis, black cherry, minerals, tobacco and chocolate, plus a light leafy element. Suave but tightly wound, with lovely energy and mountain power to its medicinal black fruit and menthol flavors. In a fairly dry style, showing little easy sweetness and finishing with substantial mouthcoating tannins. This will need a good six to eight years to expand in bottle. Inner quote mark (5/2012)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dense and a touch rustic, with chewy tannins, crushed rock, dried berry, sage and savory flavors. Maintains its firm, tight focus and appears built for the long haul. Best from 2013 through 2027. (JL) Inner quote mark (6/2012)

K&L Notes

From the locally famous Pritchard Hill vineyard where dry, rocky soils result in small but intensely flavorful grapes, "Signature" is Chapellet's flagship Cabernet production. The 2009 is a knock-out, a true point of reference for hillside Napa Cabernet blends. 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot, 9% Merlot.
