2017 Chappellet Napa Valley Cabernet Franc

SKU #1458493 93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Lastly, the 2017 Cabernet Franc comes from Napa Valley (I'm not exactly sure where the fruit is from) and is all varietal. It's a more opulent wine than the Cabernet and has considerable fruit, richness, and depth on the palate, loads of dark, chocolaty fruit, and terrific notes of spring flowers, gravelly earth, forest floor, and hints of espresso. Beautifully done and balanced, with sweet tannins, it’s a beautiful wine. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Lots of crushed-blackberry and floral aromas with raspberries, too. Very clear and bright. Full-bodied, dense and crisp with lots of fruit, yet it remains tight and toned. Some hot stones at the finish. Pretty big wine, but shows tension. Inner quote mark (2/2020)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Cabernet Franc displays pronounced red and black cherries, mulberries and warm raspberries scents with underlying blueberries, pencil shavings and dried Provence herbs plus a waft of lavender. Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers mouth-filling red and blue fruits with a firm, grainy frame and bold freshness, finishing long and perfumed. (LPB) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Cabernet Franc is a gorgeous wine with tons of character. Bright red cherry, red plum, spice, graphite, dried flowers, mint and a whole range of spice notes infuse the Franc with tons of flavor complexity. Juicy and pliant, with terrific purity, the Franc is a clear winner in this range. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2020)
