Chappellet Vineyard  Mountain Cuvee  Blended Red Mike Taylor Excellent  2004  $26.00
A favorite wine of mine since 2002 has been Chappellet's Mountain Cuvee. I recently tasted their 2004 vintage with great satisfaction. The wine shows a dark ruby core which fades to a purple rim. On the nose are aromas of blackberry, black olive, cedar, leather, toffee and vanilla along with hints of herbs. The wine shows a pure intensity on the palate. Its refined complexity comes from an ample body with velvety tannins. Sensuous overall and with a lingering finish this is an exceptionally nice bottle of wine that will be oh, so enjoyable with a proper meal!
