Chappellet 'Signature' Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
International Wine Report 93
"The 2010 Chappellet Signature Cabernet Sauvignon is dark and brooding with intoxicating aromas of black cherry, cassis, graphite, mocha, spices, herbs and sweet vanilla all topped off with some dusty minerals. This is dense and concentrated as well as balanced, with beautiful polished tannins and underlying acidity providing nice lift to the big fruit as it enters the long supple finish. There should be no problem aging this, but it's so delicious  ... read more

"The 2010 Chappellet Signature Cabernet Sauvignon is dark and brooding with intoxicating aromas of black cherry, cassis, graphite, mocha, spices, herbs and sweet vanilla all topped off with some dusty minerals. This is dense and concentrated as well as balanced, with beautiful polished tannins and underlying acidity providing nice lift to the big fruit as it enters the long supple finish. There should be no problem aging this, but it's so delicious right now it will be hard to resist. Composed of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 7% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot."~JD

Wine Advocate 92
"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." ~A.G.
About Chappellet
The Chappellet family's romance with Pritchard Hill started more than four decades ago when Donn and Molly Chappellet first glimpsed its magnificent vista of forests and wildflower-filled meadows. Inspired by the notion that Bacchus loves the hills, the Chappellets followed the advice of renowned winemaker André Tchelistcheff and settled on Pritchard Hill's rocky slopes, becoming the first winery to plant vineyards exclusively on high-elevation hillsides. From these Pritchard Hill vineyards, the Chappellets have been crafting extraordinary, age-worthy wines since 1967.

Pritchard Hill's rugged terroir has become legendary for producing wines with great intensity and depth--qualities that define the world's finest Cabernet Sauvignons. As a result, Chappellet wines have consistently received the highest praise from critics, and are sought after by the world's premier collectors. Today, a second generation of the family has joined their parents in embracing the romance of Pritchard Hill. They are passionate about preserving the land and continuing what Donn and Molly began--making extraordinary wines.

In the winery, renowned winemaker Phillip Corallo-Titus--who has been guiding Chappellet's winemaking program since 1990--individually ferments and ages lots from numerous vineyard blocks to maintain their distinctive character. These lots benefit from an array of maceration and fermentation practices. Adding even more depth and complexity, Phillip has established a barrel program utilizing the finest barrels from elite coopers and forests.

With roots deep in the land, and a belief in constantly working to enhance the quality and character of Pritchard Hill's fruit, Chappellet has earned acclaim for making California's finest hillside Cabernet Sauvignons. The Chappellet portfolio also includes exceptional Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and the highly regarded Mountain Cuvée blend.
