Chappellet Pritchard Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Powerful, profound, and impeccably structured, this wine captures the essence of great mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon. As it evolves in the glass, concentrated aromas of blueberry, blackberry, and black currant meld with hints of anise, graphite, complex herbs, dark chocolate, espresso, and spice. Though lush and viscous on the palate, a supple elegance frames the rich black cherry and ripe berry flavors, with taut underlying acidity adding poise and purity to a long resonating finish.
Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 5% Malbec
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant black cherries, warm cassis, chocolate pie and blackberry preserves notes plus nuances of wild sage, forest floor and tobacco. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is elegantly played and refreshing with velvety tannins and a long mineral-tinged finish." Wine Advocate
