Chappellet Cab Franc 2017
93 Points- Robert Parker
One of the treasures of the Chappellet portfolio, this complex and concentrated Cabernet Franc showcases how beautifully this grape expresses itself when grown on the high-mountain slopes of Pritchard Hill. Offering a mosaic of fruit, herb and spice notes, it displays aromas of dark cherry, cassis, olive, and sage, as well as oak-inspired hints of vanilla, nutmeg, and clove. On the palate, it is supple and elegant, with plush tannins and luxurious flavors of black cherry, chocolate, graphite, cedar and roasted coffee gliding to a long, complex finish.
Blend: 75% Cabernet Franc, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot
