Chappellet’s Las Piedras, a Spanish term that translates to “The Rocks,” is a wine that celebrates the prized, rugged terrain of Pritchard Hill. The thin, rock-laden soils of our vineyards yield small, concentrated berries with robust flavors. Winemaker Phillip Corallo-Titus blended individual lots of all five of the traditional Bordeaux varietals—Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot—to create this expressive wine.
Wine Blend: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Malbec, 9% Petit Verdot, 8% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc
This complex and beautifully structured wine begins with concentrated black cherry and cassis aromas, underscored by notes of roasted coffee, cinnamon and clove. On the palate, the texture is rich and mouthfilling, with fine grained tannins framing the robust flavors of dark berry and ripe plum. The lush finish ends with notes of cedar and anise.
