The 'Signature' Cabernet Sauvignon has been Chappellet's flagship wine for more than three decades. It is the benchmark for the Chappellet's long-lived, hillside winemaking tradition; full of structure and ageing potential, yet seductively forward in its concentrated varietal character, the Signature Cab is a must-have. California collectors covet vintages from the 1970's, 1980's and 1990's, because unlike many of Chappellet's neighbors, their wines still improve after 10+ years, sometimes even 20+ years.

Opening with expressive notes of blackberry, cherry and cassis, the wine is full-bodied and rich. Hints of chocolate and espresso layer with spicy oak for added complexity. Smooth tannins infused with ripe sweet fruit create a lush, supple texture. Rich waves of berry, spice and herbs create a lasting impression of finesse and structure in this Cabernet. Serve with traditional steaks topped with Boursin cheese for a twist, roast leg of Lamb with rosemary, roasted rack of Venison with sage and shallots with dried cranberry gravy, or with spiced Venison steaks with Red Cabbage Confit and Red Wine Sauce.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9/% Petit Verdot and the rest Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, is a classic example of Pritchard Hill, Chappellet and of Napa Valley. Brilliant purity, a dense purple color, superb blackberry and floral-infused blueberry fruit and cassis, a full-bodied mouthfeel, moderate but sweet tannin and a long, layered, texture and finish make for a profound Cabernet Sauvignon that actually sells at a bargain price for what is in the bottle. Moreover, look for it to evolve graciously for another 20+ years.
