    April 8, 2017 - This wine has really held up well! Smooth as silk.

    March 4, 2017 - Closed up when first decanted with high alcohol, cherries and Cabernet franc on the nose and mouth. Still opaque with rim just turning. Surprisingly little tannin, certainly not enough to go the distance. Lot's of glycerin. Taste is well melded but not complex. A good wine for perhaps rack of lamb with rosemary or a Beef Stroganoff. It will let the food shine while providing a good solid foil to the more complex food flavors. I would drink it up in the next couple of years.

    1/2 hour after decanting nose has less alcohol and showing some plum and prune but flavor unchanged. Good balance but not a great wine.

    June 23, 2015 - This one had turned, brownish color and sour taste. Down the drain.

    January 22, 2015 - We so wanted to love this since the 2001 Chappellet CF is one of our favorites, but it just wasn't to be. Definitely past its peak, lots of earthy funk but muted on the fruit. Drinking mostly secondary flavors right now rather than primary. Still have one more in the cellar, but no reason to wait on it.

    July 17, 2011 - Light nose, mellow fruit, deep varietal notes with extended finish. Delightful, mouth filling and mature.
