Blended from traditional Bordeaux varietals, the Chappellet Mountain Cuvee Proprietor‰Ûªs Blend builds on ChappelletåÊVineyards’ five decades of experience crafting great Napa County mountain-grown wines. Each varietal in the cuvÌ©e contributes nuances that complement each other. The result is a complex array of aromas and flavors that deliver pure pleasure in a glass. This is the wine to choose when you‰Ûªre looking for vivid, mouth-filling fruit flavors. The aromas are lively and vibrant, with layers of red fruit, rum raison, cola, vanilla and cedar. On the palate, the wine is rich with a full body that offers inviting flavors of ripe berry, spiced chocolate, and toasted oak. Throughout, the interplay between the five Bordeaux varieties creates a lovely underlying complexity that carries through to a lingering finish.
