Winemaker's notes

Chappellet’s Las Piedras, a Spanish term that translates to “the rocks”, is a wine that celebrates the prized rugged terrain of Pritchard Hill. Grapevines thrive in the thin, rock-laden soils of our vineyards, producing small berries with robust flavors. Winemaker Phillip Corallo-Titus blends individual lots of the five traditional Bordeaux varietals—Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot—to create this expressive wine.

Ripe cherry and berry intermingled with complex herbal notes of tea, tobacco and bay leaf make a strong first impression. Cinnamon and clove imparted by new French oak barrels add additional sweetness to the nose. The palate is full and round with tannins that create a strong framework for the concentrated flavors. Hints of chocolate and coffee complement the lush mélange of berries. Our Las Piedras shows the complexity and balance that can be achieved by weaving the five Bordeaux varietals into a tapestry that is colorful, expressive and unique to each vintage.
