    September 22, 2017 - Opaque, but not super dense on palate. Black fruit, leather, hint of bramble. Long, teeth staining finish. Love Chappellet. Opened up after 1 hour. Drinking very well right now and has life to live.

    June 27, 2017 - From a mag. Wine is in a good spot-drinking nicely. did decant for 30 min. Tannins mellowed and integrated with typical Chappellet fruit. Solid effort.

    June 25, 2017 - Great on pop and pour. Better with 2 hours of air as each glass improves.
    Would benefit from 2 or more hour decant or more years in the cellar

    June 4, 2017 - Decanted for about an hour, but surprisingly, I still felt it was tight. Dark fruits, but not really very rich or ripe and with a somewhat firm structure and a slightly rustic character. I hope time will give it more richness, but I am starting to be skeptical.
