Chappellet Signature Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2006: “It’s Just Great” @Chappellet_wine

We bought this great Cab when we visited Chappellet’s gorgeous winery and vineyard a few years ago.  We went with a close friend who was making her initial pilgrimage to the Napa Valley…I think she’s ready to join the “wine country” cult.

This wine was just phenomenal, and not because Wine Spectator told us that it was.  It’s a very full bodied wine – – what that means exactly, I can’t articulate beyond the description that my taste buds were overwhelmed by berry and smooth vanilla without the overpowering fruit bomb of many Napa Cabs.  This lives up to the reviews and I look forward to visiting Chappellet this year during crush to pick up some of their new offering.
