Chappellet 2017 - Cabernet Franc 750 ml.
Region: Napa Valley
Varietal: Cabernet Franc
Size: 750 ml.
Since being founded in 1967, Chappellet has established Pritchard Hill as one of California’s most revered winegrowing sites, fulfilling Donn’s vision of producing singular wines from his family’s mountain vineyard. Today, true to their parents’ ongoing passion for the grand, natural landscape of Pritchard Hill, a second generation of the Chappellet family has embraced the mountain’s exceptional terroir and is committed to stewarding their father’s vision for generations to come. The dry, rocky soils of Pritchard Hill produce small, intensely flavorful grapes. Crop thinning allows for full, even ripening and further elevates flavor complexity. Deep, rich and beautifully structured, this is a classic expression of hillside Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, offering alluring aromas of blackberry, cassis and chocolate, along with hints of espresso, anise and fragrant herbs. On the palate, creamy oak and concentrated berry and black cherry flavors are underscored by velvety tannins and subtle notes of cola, clove and black licorice.
