"The 2012 'Signature' Cabernet Sauvignon from Chappellet is an outstanding effort, offering seductive aromas of black cherries, crème de cassis, herbs, sweet spices, mocha and dusty minerals. It continues to impress on the palate where it delivers layers of full-bodied richness, supported by beautifully polished tannins. This remains balanced and focused all the way through the long, supple finish. Just a remarkable effort from the team at Chappellet and another outstanding Signature cabernet from the estate."

"Aromas of dark fruits, minerals and flowers follow through to a full body with firm tannins and a fresh and fruity finish. Intense yet balance and stylish. Drink it. Or age. Yes."

"A classy and classic Napa Cabernet, dark-colored, with rich black- berry, black licorice, cedar, tobacco and dusty, loamy earth notes. The brightness and density of the red and dark berry fruit gives this an immediate charm"
–April 2015, James Laube

WINE
2012 Chappellet Signature Cabernet Sauvignon
Chappellet Winery

76% Cabernet Sauvignon
9% Merlot
8% Malbec
7% Petit Verdot

The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon has been Chappellet's flagship wine for more than three decades. It is a benchmark for the long-lived hillside wines of the Napa Valley. It is full of structure and aging potential, yet seductively forward in its concentrated varietal character.

The dry, rocky soils of Pritchard Hill produce small, intensely flavorful grapes. Crop-thinning allows for full, even ripening and further elevates flavor complexity.
