The 1991 Chappellet Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley had 13% alcohol, cost about $15 back then, and at 29 years old, the wine scored a very nice 17 points on the 20-point Dionysian scale.

The wine had an amber orange-brown edge, was soft after decanting, and filled your nose with new leather, spice, and hints of black raspberry and blueberry.

This was a signature series selection, their best. It was worth the wait to see a Napa wine develop and show some Bordeaux qualities.

I do have one bottle of this wine remaining and will open it next year at 30 years old. Maybe some of you can join me. In Vino Veritas.
