    June 4, 2021 - W duck from skillet. Good combo. Took a while to open up but was good. Bit tarry at the start but this became balanced after 2 hours. Drink up

    December 25, 2019 - A very good wine, but bordering on overpriced. My fervor for Chappellet is waning.

    June 17, 2018 - W lamb at Rudy&Jenny. Very good wine and perfect combination. Prob one of nicest US made cab francs. Good length and good fruit all in balance.

    May 20, 2018 - Drinking amazingly well at this time. Great bouquet but and even better taste. Fruit still present after 7 years down.

    December 31, 2017 - From the "bastardized " vintage comes this 2011 Franc that has a great blackberry, toasted oak core. Ripe berry and spice towards the finish. Still has tannin on the finish but definitely softened after 2 hours. Surprised at the youth and complexity here. I am not really sure how many more years this wine has left, but I can tell you that it's definitely more than 1-2 as the average drink date on here would suggest. This wine is just starting to approach the top, which means that this one probably has 7-10 years before it's in the gutter.
