Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals layers of red and black berries with stunning freshness and an approachable, grainy texture, finishing long and earthy. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown collapse

Starting with the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature, it sports a vivid purple color as well as a stunningly pure bouquet of crème de cassis, vanilla oak, spice box, and graphite. Deep, full-bodied, with incredible purity of fruit, this beauty has no hard edges, offering beautiful overall balance and a great finish. As with most 2016s, it has a certain accessibility and upfront charm, but it will be even better with short-term cellaring and keep for two decades. This beauty is worthy of a multi-case purchase. collapse

Situated on the rolling mountain slopes of Pritchard Hill, the Chappellet vineyards always yield Cabernets of intense personality. They are dark, savory, sexy wines redolent of tobacco, old leather, sandalwood, woodsmoke, and exotic spices. And although they are powerful structurally, winemaker Phillip Corallo-Titus is a master of coaxing out a certain plushness. Needless to say, the wine is a steal.

Mocha, bittersweet chocolate, spice, new leather and menthol wrap around a core of beautifully layered, dark-fleshed fruit. Ample, creamy and resonant on the palate, the 2016 has a lot to offer. Best of all, the Signature remains one of the very finest values readers will find in Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.- AG collapse

Gorgeous fruit with currant and blackberry character. Medium to full body, silky and luscious tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Lovely drinkability now, but will improve with age.

It is blended with 12% Petit Verdot and 9% Malbec. Smoky oak, clove and tobacco accent red fruit and a savory bottom line of cedar and sage. It's rich but well behaved. collapse
