Chappellet Mountain Cuvee Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
This is the wine to choose when you're looking for vivid, mouth-filling fruit flavors. Our Mountain Cuvee is a winemaker's blend that beautifully expresses the distinctive qualities of the traditional Bordeaux varietals, and is crafted for early consumption. Each component making up the cuvee contributes nuances that mingle with and complement each other. The result is a complex array of aromas and flavors that deliver pure pleasure in a glass.
Our 2008 Mountain Cuvee is vibrant and harmonious, displaying the complexity of a classic Bordeaux blend, with all the appealing richness of great California winegrowing. The nose offers an immediate rush of sun-ripened fruit and spice that spills from the glass, highlighting notes of dark cherry, plum, cinnamon, mocha and toasted oak. On the palate, abundant black cherry and cola flavors are supported by soft, rich tannins and a supple texture that leads to a long, satisfying finish.
