CHAPPELLET MERLOT NAPA VALLEY
Serious in structure and handsomely oaked, this dense, deep and spicy wine is worth saving for a special occasion. Black cherries, blackberries, pencil shavings and espresso fill the aromas and flavors, while abundant velvety tannins shape the mouthfeel and extend the finish. Best from 2026-2036.Cellar Selection.
