One of my clients, but made when I was working down in Modesto, before Napa, still full of rich ripe fruit, very youthful, 1995 was a sweet spot between the greener old school style and the ripe modern style, and this wine is definitely the best of both of those worlds

A little disappointed given the year, although it wasn't spoiled and still very good

'95 Chappellet - beautiful beautiful wine - great mix between old and new Napa styles, but leaning towards old leaner style at 13%. Black and red Cherry, cassis, slightly green, still showing plenty of fruit for its age. Finished with cocoa, vanilla combo. Lots of smoke on the nose and finish.
