    December 1, 2015 - Decanting this wine will fill your house with smells of berries. There is also a pipe tobacco note to the nose. In the glass it's dense berry preserves with baking spices. Flavor is mouth filling with trippy tannins on the mid palate. Alcohol is high and slightly distracting. Finish for days.

    November 6, 2015 - decanted 1 hour. quite rustic at first with a medicinal finish. After 2 hours, more of the cocoa started to come out as well as the sweetness on the front end. decent napa cab, but a bit disappointing for the money. will wait a few years to open 2nd bottle

    October 10, 2015 - Beautiful deep dark wine. Great aromatics, great bright fruit, plum notes, terrific balance and a long intense finish. Still young with grippy tannins, but the fruit is second to none! Another great balanced Chappellet.

    September 27, 2015 - Inky purple red in the glass. Changed significantly over a few hours as others have noted. Was a bit hot and austere at first with a bitter finish. After 2 hours, notes of chocolate, toffee, and macerated cherries in the nose. Dark cherry, chocolate and berries in the mouth. Creamy texture that is only slightly rough around the edges towards the end. Waiting on this wine may help to resolve the finish, but otherwise a nice wine at a reasonable price (for Napa).
