Winemaker Notes

Showcasing the complexity and concentration of great mountain grown Cabernet Franc, the nose offers a beautiful combination of sweet red fruits, sage, white pepper and lavender, with underlying hints of roasted coffee, vanilla and cedar. The palate is elegantly proportioned, with balanced acidity and velvety tannins adding length and focus to flavors of cherry, chocolate, plum, rose hip and espresso.

Critical Acclaim

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
A good 15% Cabernet Sauvignon is blended within this wine, as well as 4% each of Malbec and Petit Verdot. Impressive, it offers rich notions of dark chocolate and graham cracker that present as round and richly soft. A bright streak of acidity contrasts well, refreshing the palate under cover of creamy oak.
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
This wine is black without being pruney or superripe. It’s focused on flavors of dark herbs and black cherries, with some red-cherry relief in the middle, then it only seems to go darker in the end. Smoky and dense, this is a substantial cabernet that happens to be franc.

Chappellet Winery, California
Chappellet Winery Watch Chappellet's Amazing Story Winery Video
For more than four decades, the Chappellet family has been crafting world-class wines from fruit cultivated on the steep, rocky slopes of Napa Valley's renowned Pritchard Hill. As one of the first wineries to pioneer high-elevation hillside planting, and one of the few remaining great family-owned Napa Valley wineries, Chappellet Vineyard and Winery has influenced generations of vintners. Throughout its history, Chappellet has also established an enduring legacy as one of California's most acclaimed producers of Cabernet Sauvignon.

The Chappellets' romance with Pritchard Hill began when Donn and Molly Chappellet first glimpsed the mountain's spectacular vistas in the late 1960s. Inspired by the notion that Bacchus loves the hills, Donn and Molly followed the advice of legendary winemaker André Tchelistcheff and settled on the rocky eastern slopes of the Napa Valley. There, on the mountain’s serene and picturesque hillsides, the Chappellets established their home and winery, raising their children and cultivating the vineyards.

Since being founded by Donn and Molly in 1967, Chappellet has earned acclaim championing the robust power and complexity of wines crafted from mountain grapes. At the same time, Chappellet has helped to establish Pritchard Hill as one of California’s most revered winegrowing sites. To honor the mountain's rich, expressive character, the winemaking team focuses on creating extraordinary, age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignons that embody the intensity and finesse of fruit from Pritchard Hill.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
