Chappellet Cervantes Mountain Cuvee 2011 750ml

Chappellet Cervantes Mountain Cuvee

The 2011 CERVANTES is dark and concentrated, with lovely aromas of ripe cherry, berry fruit, cola, cedar and coffee. Supporting notes of sweet oak, anise and cassis add brightness and nuance to the nose. On the palate, this full-bodied wine is packed with radiant tannins, mouth filling sweet fruit, chocolate and baking spices. Though eminently drinkable now for its flashy youthfulness, 2011 has also produced a cellar-worthy CERVANTES that will gain complexity with additional aging.

This is the wine to choose when you’re looking for vivid, mouthfilling fruit flavors. CERVANTES 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 complement each other. The result is a complex array of aromas and flavors that deliver pure pleasure in a glass.

Crafted primarily from the traditional Bordeaux varietals, Cervantes Mountain Cuvee is a winemaker’s blend. Each component making up the cuvée contributes nuances that complement each other. The result is a complex array of aromas and flavors that deliver pure pleasure in a glass. Made for more near-term consumption, this is the wine to choose when you’re looking for vivid, mouthfilling fruit flavors.

Though 2011 was on of the coldest years in the history of Chappellet, our experience from four decades of farming and our close relationships with our grower partners paid great dividends we aggressively thinned early in the season, doing as many as two to three fruit drops. Excellent late season weather delivered a spectacular finish for the vintage. While the harvest was quite compact, the grapes came in showing exceptional richness, good acidity and excellent flavor development.
