Chappellet Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Pritchard Hill Estate Vineyard 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

2004 Chappellet Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill opens with aromas of baked cherries and berries, layered with dark chocolate, spice, and sweet French oak. With the first sip, potent flavors of ripe plum and cherry flow to graceful waves of cocoa, roasted coffee and leather. Exceptionally sleek and supple tannins provide a well-integrated framework for this weighty wine. Its extraordinary concentration lingers on the palate and long into the multi-dimensional finish. This is a California Wine.

The Chappellets’ romance with Pritchard Hill started when Donn and Molly Chappellet first glimpsed its spectacular vistas. Perched 1,200 feet above the floor of the Napa Valley, the atmosphere at the Chappellet family's winery and Pritchard Hill estate vineyards is serene and peaceful. You can't help but fall in love with the breathtaking views and the gentle mountain Donn and Molly Chappellet made their home. The Chappellet family has been crafting world class wines from their Pritchard Hill estate vineyards since 1967. Spurred by the notion that Bacchus loves the hills and that mountain fruit would make superior wine, Chappellet followed the advice of legendary winemaker André Tchelistcheff and settled on the rocky eastern slopes of the Napa Valley. The Chappellets were the first to plant vineyards exclusively on high elevation hillsides and the second winery to be established in the Napa Valley after Prohibition. The foundation of Chappellet winemaking program is focused on creating extraordinary age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon that expresses the unique characteristics of the fruit from Pritchard Hill. The rugged terroir of Chappellet's vineyards produces wines with great intensity and depth, qualities that define the world's finest wines. For four decades Chappellet wines have received high praise from wine critics and have been sought after by the world's premier collectors. Today the six Chappellet children share their parents’ romance with Pritchard Hill's complex rocky soils and magnificent views. They are passionate about preserving the land by using sustainable farming techniques and continuing what their parents started: making extraordinary wines that express the distinctiveness of Pritchard Hill.

Rough-hewn, dense, abundant and chewy, with concentrated, extracted dried currant, mineral and hefty oak and mineral flavors that make this broad-shouldered, framed by potent tannins. Needs lots of time. Best from 2009 through 2018. Tasted twice, wit... Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2004 Chappellet Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill 1500ml
