Taste the beautifully complex wines of Chappellet Winery from Napa Valley, California 11am-6pm July 10 & 11. Chappellet is a truly special place and is a consistent source of world class wines. The winery was started in 1967 by Donn and Molly Chappellet in a little known region of Napa Valley known as Pritchard Hill, and was the first high elevation vineyard in California. In addition to being breathtakingly beautiful, these vineyards are organically farmed and produce intensely concentrated mountain grapes that form the background for their age worthy red wines.
This weekend, try a staff favorite in the Chappellet Mountain Cuvee. A blend of traditional Bordeaux varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petite Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Syrah. The aromas are rich and ripe, with cassis, blackberry and cherry fruits, as well as notes of mocha, coffee, baking spices, and toasty oak. On the palate this wine is very well balanced, with lush dark fruit supported by round tannins, and acidity that leads to a smooth, long finish. It will be absolutely delicious paired with a grilled steak.
