Sleek, rich and intense, this beautifully balanced red offers a complex mix of black currant and black cherry, red and black licorice. Firm, focused, expansive and layered, ending with classic Bordeaux-like cedar, tobacco and cigar box notes. Drink n... Wine Spectator.

Your first impression is how concentrated in blackcurrant and cassis fruit this wine is. It'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.

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.

An impressive blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, and 5% Merlot, the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill reveals some elevated toasty oak in the nose, but the fruit quality, richness, and overall intensity suggest the wood will be absorbed completely in another 3-4 years. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by an oaky nose revealing scents of blue fruits, black currants, licorice, and spice box. This full-bodied Cabernet possesses sweet fruit, good integration of acidity and tannin, and a long finish. Give it another two years in the bottle, and drink it over the following 12-15.

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.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill boasts glorious notes of flowers, blueberries, blackberries, boysenberries, plums and incense. Full-bodied and layered with tremendous depth as well as purity and that nobility of great Cabernet Sauvignon that very few regions in the world can achieve, this youngster, although approachable and seductive now, should evolve for 25-30 more years. Statisticians may be interested in knowing that the Signature is a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot, 1% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc. The Pritchard Hill is composed of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, 8% Malbec, 2% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc. Old timers (including this geezer) have long known that one of the most compelling, riveting, world-class Cabernet Sauvignons ever made in California was Chappellet’s 1969, which was made by the legendary, now reclusive Philip Togni. As evidenced by anyone who visits the region, Pritchard Hill is now a mountainside covered with vines. However, Chappellet was among the first estates to establish a presence in this region...96" WA 12/10
