Chappellet Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Signature Reserve

Wine Details

Wine Description

(2000 Vintage) The 2000 Signature Cabernet opens with intense, dark fruit aromas of blackberry, currant, and dark cherry. The concentrated fruit is punctuated with spicy notes of anise and black pepper adding complexity and character to the nose. Layers of dark chocolate and roasted coffee impart additional depth and richness. The aromas carry through satisfyingly into the rich, mouthfilling palate. Baked cherry, toasty oak and hints of smoke and spice round out the flavors and lead to a long, flavorful finish. Enjoy now through 2012.
