2010 Chappellet "Signature" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1118673 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature is a dark, mysterious beauty endowed with considerable depth and richness. Mocha, chocolate, spices and plums fuse together gracefully as this soft, supple wine takes shape in the glass. I very much like the immediacy of the 2010. Only a little bit of persistence is missing on the finish, but not enough to materially detract from what is a gorgeous bottle of wine. For Napa Valley standards, this is about as good as it gets for the money. The blend is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 7% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good medium ruby-red. Inviting aromas of cassis, dark chocolate, mocha, licorice, tobacco and loam. Supple on entry, then ripe, suave and concentrated, with harmonious acidity framing the youthful currant, mocha and menthol flavors. A bit less giving today than the nose suggests but nicely sweet and sharply delineated. The firmly tannic, lively finish is a bit youthfully tough and in need of patience, but this cabernet offers outstanding potential. 92(+?) points Inner quote mark (6/2013)

K&L Notes

When others in the Napa Valley started making over-the-top Cabs, Chappellet heald their course, making balanced, ageworthy Cabs from Pritchard Hill. Their flagship wine has just gotten better over the last 40 years, and the 2010 sings. "The nose displays rich, vivid layers of dark berry, cherry and sweet oak, underscored by background notes of bay leaf, sage, chocolate and anise," according to the winemaker notes, and the "mouthfeel is powerful, yet rounded, with a silky presence that allows the wine to gracefully support its size and its voluptuous ripe cherry, berry and plum flavors. Spicy oak notes of cinnamon, vanilla and roasted coffee add nuance and depth, while youthful tannins give a fine grip to the palate providing the stucture for long-term aging."
