TN: 2004 Chappellet Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Signature

Did a search on this wine and saw nothing and was surprised there were no previous notes.

2004 Chappellet Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Signature - USA, California, Napa Valley (3/22/2009)
I was able to buy this for $31 with a coupon and wish I had gotten more at that price (though I just picked up another bottle of 03 Ladera for less than $31). I decanted this for an hour, and there are still prevalent tannins, but they are smooth and unobtrusive as there is good, solid fruit to offset and the wine is well balanced. There is both red and dark fruit with significant tannin and medium acidity on a finish of about 30-35 seconds. No heat either. Not quite the layers or complexity to score higher, but a very nice wine that is worth its price more so that most other Napa cabs. (91 pts.)
