Chappellet Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Well-integrated flavors of raspberry, red plum and dried cherry with cocoa, epazote, camphor, bay and allspice. Subtle fruit interweaves with complex savory notes, creating a wonderful “something else” that makes wine, well, wine. Medium bodied with a firm tannin structure. The palate detects the 14.9% alcohol heat that stretches the limit. An upright citizen, properly attired, out for a Sunday stroll, bidding a good day to all. A very good wine, excellent without the noticeable alcohol. (Reviewed 2/3/13)

  1. Glad you enjoyed! I have not seen the 07 vintage locally but recently more than enjoyed their 2009. So much so that I wrote about it too [link below]. Thanks for sharing.
