CHAPPELLET WINERY 2013 CHAPPELLET CABERNET SAUVIGNON SIGNATURE
"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature is bright, focused and nuanced throughout. Freshly cut flowers, mint, sweet red berries, pomegranate and cinnamon are some of the aromas and flavor that flesh out in the glass. Striking in its aromatics, with pliant, open-knit fruit and fabulous balance, the 2013 offers outstanding quality and even better value. The addition of Malbec and Merlot in the blend softens some of the contours. Polished and refined, the 2013 Signature is one of the best wines readers will find for the money."

|The Chappellet family’s romance with Pritchard Hill started more than four decades ago when Donn and Molly Chappellet first glimpsed its magnificent vista of forests and wildflower-filled meadows. Inspired by the notion that Bacchus loves the hills, the Chappellets followed the advice of renowned winemaker Andre Tchelistcheff and settled on Pritchard Hill’s rocky slopes, becoming the first winery to plant vineyards exclusively on high-elevation hillsides. From these Pritchard Hill vineyards, the Chappellets have been crafting extraordinary, age-worthy wines since 1967.
Pritchard Hill’s rugged terroir has become legendary for producing wines with great intensity and depth—qualities that define the world’s finest Cabernet Sauvignons. As a result, Chappellet wines have consistently received the highest praise from critics, and are sought after by the world’s premier collectors.
Today, a second generation of the family has joined their parents in embracing the romance of Pritchard Hill. They are passionate about preserving the land and continuing what Donn and Molly began—making extraordinary wines.
