May 24, 2016 - Calm and smooth. Only needs about 15-30 minutes open to open up properly.

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.
