Food Pairings for Chappellet Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Pritchard Hill Estate Vineyard
Beaurtiful deep garnet color. Nose detects expected Oak. Very round mouthfilling palate. Good balance of acid, alcohol and fruit--berries. Tannin around the edge indicates further aging potential, but drinking this wine right now is a pleasure. Enjoyed this wine with a dinner of filet mignon w/ a mushroom sauce. US$94.99 in 2004.
[Blue Hill, lamb] Very tight when first opened. Decanted for 2.5 hours, when it began to open and seemed to plateau. Striking fluorescent purple color. Aromas of cassis, ripe red fruit, anise. Concentrated. On the palate blackberry, cherry, chocolate, and spice. Nice structure that suggests a long life. Moderate tannins that are not fully integrated are a reminder of its youth. I knew that I was premature but could not wait. And others suggest, I will wait 5-7 yrs to open my second and last bottle. Overall fanatastic stuff that may merit a score of 96-98 in the future. 92-94
External Reviews for Chappellet Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Pritchard Hill Estate Vineyard
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.
Chappelletrsquo;s been making some excellent wines of late and merits a careful look. This debut bottling of the Pritchard Hill Estate Vineyard couldnrsquo;t have come from a better vintage. In a year when wineries were blesses with both quality and quantity, Chappellet took grapes from the Pritchard Hill Vineyard, located on the eastern slope of the Napa Valley. A blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, and 4% Cabernet Franc, itrsquo;s dark, ripe and concentrated, with pretty currant, plum, black cherry, roasted coffee and leather flavors tightly woven together, finishing with lively acidity and firm tannins.
The impressive 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill boasts a dense purple color in addition to notes of blueberries, cassis, vanilla, and lead pencil shavings. The complex aromatics are accompanied by a medium to full-bodied, rich, structured, well-defined effort that will benefit from a few more years of cellaring. It should age for 10ndash;15+ years.
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.
Big and rich in the mouth, with gorgeous, velvety tannins. Offers a juicy plum and cassis core, with oak, tobacco and earth accents, and a char and cocoa note on the back end. As compelling as the flavors are, itrsquo;ll be the mouthfeel that wins you over.
Your first impression is how concentrated in blackcurrant and cassis fruit this wine is. Itandrsquo;s immense as well in flashy new oak. Then there are the tannins. Gentle and sweet, yet complex as a tapestry, they offer structure to the decadent flavors. This is a real achievement, and as soft as it is, the wine seems balanced enough to do interesting things over the next ten years.
A brilliant blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, and 5% Malbec, the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill Estate exhibits a dense ruby/purple color along with a beautiful nose of blueberries, cassis, graphite, and subtle new oak. Elega... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2001 Chappellet Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill 750ml
