The wine was bottled after spending 22 months in French Oak barrels (60% new).
Blended from the traditional Bordeaux varietals, including our own coveted grapes, the Chappellet Mountain Cuvee Proprietor’s Blend builds on our five decades of experience crafting great Napa County mountain-grown wines. Each component varietal in the cuvée contributes nuances that complement each other. The result is a complex array of aromas and flavors that deliver pure pleasure in a glass. Made for more near-term enjoyment, this is the wine to choose when you’re looking for vivid, mouthfilling fruit flavors.
The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon has been our flagship wine for more than three decades. It is a benchmark for the long-lived hillside wines of the Napa Valley; full of structure and aging potential, yet seductively forward in its concentrated varietal character.
This supple and elegant mountain-grown Merlot continues to remind wine lovers how delicious Merlot can be. It was aged for 22 months in French oak barrels (40% new), and was blended with three of the other red Bordeaux varieties for added structure and complexity.
Chappellet’s Las Piedras, a Spanish term that translates to “The Rocks,” is a wine that celebrates the prized, rugged terrain of Pritchard Hill. The thin, rock-laden soils of our vineyards yield small, concentrated berries with robust flavors. Winemaker Phillip Corallo-Titus blended individual lots of all five of the traditional red Bordeaux varieties to create this expressive wine.
Cultivation pays homage to two of our great passions: mountain-grown grapes and the art of the blend. This wine combines mountain-grown fruit from our own acclaimed Pritchard Hill with grapes from the dry-farmed old vines of Bald Mountain Vineyard, located at an elevation of 2,000 feet on Mount Veeder. Cultivation lets each variety show its own personality in the blend, resulting in a wine with beautiful mountain fruit, plush tannins and layered complexity.
In 1967, legendary grower Warren Dutton planted his first vineyard, and helped to establish Russian River Valley as one of the world’s great appellations for Pinot Noir. Today, his sons, Steve and Joe, carry on Warren’s legacy and have established Dutton Ranch as one of the region’s preeminent vineyards. This wine is made using grapes from some of the most prized sections of Pinot Noir at Dutton Ranch. Nestled in the cool, foggy hills above the Russian River Valley, the result is a wine with remarkable depth and concentration.
