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 red Bordeaux varieties to create this expressive wine.
Tasting Notes This luxurious blend of the five classic Bordeaux varietals displays aromas of ripe blackberry, cassis, cedar chest, tobacco leaf and graphite, as well as hints of espresso, vanilla and clove from barrel aging. One the palate, velvety tannins and toned acidity frame the alluring flavors of boysenberry and spice, with notes of anise, sage and truffles emerging on the long, lush finish.
