Chappellet Mtn Cuvee 17
This lush and layered Bordeaux blend begins with alluring fruit-driven aromas of cherry, currant, and plum, as well as sophisticated undercurrents of graphite, cedar, clove, and nutmeg. The berry and spice notes are echoed on the round, mouth-coating palate, where they mingle with hints of black tea, vanilla, and savory herbs. An underpinning of tannins provides weight, structure, and impressive length to the finish.
