The Pritchard Hill Cabernet from Chappellet is gorgeous and particularly age-worthy in the 2009 vintage. The pure, layered fruit character has grace and definition, and is balanced by broad tannic structure that will reward the patient.

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill is a wine that should only be bought by the very patient. An infant today, the 2009 is all about promise and potential. The wine possesses stunning depth and concentration, with fabulous balance and tons of personality. The only thing it needs is time. This dark, brooding Cabernet Sauvignon is a lot to look forward to. The 2009 is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petite Verdot and 10% Malbec. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2034. Dark and saturated in color, this has earthy and meaty aromas like bloody, rare steak and charred bone-that sort of proteinous spirit. The actual fruit flavor is incredibly rich and concentrated in blackberries, black currants and crisp bacon. The impression is of a sweet, delicious Cabernet that's a touch warm in alcohol, but lush and refined. - S.H.

Winemaker's Notes:

75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot, 10% Malbec. From its dark, incredibly saturated color to its intense aromas of baked blackberry, dark cherry, crème de cassis, plum and anise this wine is layered, rich and sophisticated. On the palate, notes of espresso, dark chocolate and toasted oak, support ripe fruit and spice flavors, with seamless, mouthcoating tannins adding power and longevity. Despite its epic nature, there is also a liveliness and radiance to this wine that gives it poise, precision and balance.
