Chappellet (Napa Valley) Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 wine review by (PB)
Palate--Supple tannins, mouth filling extracted dark berry fruit with mid layer of tar, and more plum with a touch of bread and in the words of my wife, "Andie's Mints". Finish lingers a bit with some charcoal.
This is a big ripe extracted Napa Cab with a lot going for it but it is still a bit young. It is structured, deliciousness right now but will come into its own in a about 3 more years. It isn't cheap--$40-$50 but is a nice treat! This reminds me of Caymus' Cabernet and is just what pure Cabernet should taste like. Thanks Thomas! Was an awesome compliment to boneless Rib-eye on the grill. Raise a glass.
