Daily Glass – Chappellet Mountain Cuvee Napa Valley 2007

As this is the first post of this kind,  a little explanation – as I usually have a glass of wine every night, Daily Glass will be the place to share my thoughts about the wine I was drinking.  For what it worth, it is only my opinion, so it is only relevant to you if your palate and taste in wine are similar to mine.  Anyway, here we go…

Chappellet Mountain Cuvee Napa Valley 2007

2007 vintage was great in Napa Valley ( rated 94-97 WS), so I guess this wine is too young to be judged. A mix of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Tightly woven with only a bit of fruit showing, and tannins being not too pronounced but tremendously lingering. This was not a bad wine – but at the same time, this was not a great wine either, therefore, until I try another bottle in 3-4 years…

Drinkability: 7-

Again, another explanation: Drinkability is my way to rate the wine. Wines are rated on the scale from 1-10, with + or – modifiers when uncertain.  10 means the most amazing ever, and 1 would mean “I would rather drink vinegar”. Throughout all the years,  the lowest rating ever was 4, and I’m still waiting for the perfect 10 (9 being the highest ever so far).
