Winemaker Notes:A classic expression of hillside Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, this luxurious and powerfully structured wine begins with aromas of ripe berry, cherry, cedar and cigar box, as well as notes of dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla and clove. On the palate, rich, but well-knit tannins, underscore silky berry liqueur flavors, carrying the wine to a lingering finish with hints of bay leaf and anise.

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

Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 5% Malbec

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Wilfred Wong - "The 2018 Chappellet Signature Cabernet Sauvignon carries its Napa Valley banner well. This wine delivers attractive black fruit and oaky aromas and flavors that stay focused and long through the wine's finish. Pair it with a grilled, well-marbled ribeye."


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot and 5% Malbec. It was harvested from September 18 to October 30, and the alcohol weighed in at 14.5%. Deep garnet-purple in color, exuberant notes of warm plums, ripe black and red currants and black cherries come bounding out of the glass with suggestions of cedar chest, unsmoked cigars and beef drippings. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is simply singing with juicy black fruits and velvety tannins, finishing long with some baking spice hints coming through. Open for business now, this wine can easily be cellared for 20 years or more. Rating : 93+"


James Suckling - "Lots of blackcurrant and blueberry with violet and boysenberry. Some chocolate, too. Full-bodied with lightly dusty tannins that give a special texture and beauty to the wine. Flavorful and intense at the finish."


Jeb Dunnuck - "This larger production cuvée from this estate is always a winner, and the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature checks in as 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, and 5% Malbec. Beautiful crème de cassis, camphor, toasted spice, leather, and earthy tobacco notes all emerge from the glass, and this beauty is medium to full-bodied, supple, and seamless on the palate, with loads of up-front appeal. Drink it over the coming 10-12 years."
