Chappellet Mountain Cuvee 2021
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Molly and Donn Chappellet's quest to make a First-Growth quality wine in the Napa Valley led them to Pritchard Hill in 1967, and the family is still at it. The producer says This beautifully aromatic wine leaps out of the glass with concentrated notes of red currant, boysenberry, cassis, roasted coffee, dark chocolate, savory undertones, and notions of sweet oak. It is rich and mouthcoating on the palate, with a seamless texture and supple tannins framing luxurious layers of dark berry fruit, barrel spice, and fresh herbs. The 2021 cuvée is 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot, 14% Merlot, 12% Malbec and 5% Cabernet Franc.
