Big, ripe and complex, but light on its feet. An elegant, spicy mix of rich currant, anise, toasty oak, espresso and subtle herbal scents, all of which fold together nicely, ending with a long, persistent finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Best from 2010 through 2016.

Sleek, rich, intense and beautifully balanced, with a complex mix of black currant and black cherry, plus red and black licorice. Firm, focused, expansive and layered, ending with classic Bordeaux-like cedar, tobacco and cigar box notes. Drink now through 2020.

Grounded in the steep, volcanic soils of eastern Napa, this luxurious Cabernet gives layers of richness. From a base of black fig and date, it rises to savory spice and earth tones, the plush, ripe tannin offering chocolate, the freshness of the acidity bringing mint. A textural pleasure.

Dark and immense; a big, rich, firmly tannic style that packs in lots of chewy currant, mineral, sage and wild berry flavors that fold into herb, cedar and tobacco notes. Finishes with a long, potent aftertaste that suggests short-term cellaring. Best from 2006 through 2012.

A big, ripe, expressive style, brimming with rich currant, blackberry, new shoe leather and spice notes. Very well-focused, intense and concentrated, with firm, tight tannins. Needs time. Best from 2005 through 2014.

...tight aromatics offering up scents of blueberries, minerals, cassis, and subtle toast. It is medium to full-bodied and elegant, with sweet tannin as well as a tightly-knit, convincing finish. This wine appears to have a promising future. Although ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1997 Chappellet Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill 750ml
