Chappellet Pritchard Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Chappellet, this wine is crafted by blending Cabernet Sauvignon (83%) with other classic Bordeaux varietals (8% Malbec, 6% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot). The wine was aged for 22 months in 100 percent new French oak.
This is a classic expression of mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon that combines exceptional structure and concentration with graceful purity and poise. The aromas reveal deep layers of blackberry, cassis and anise along with notes of cedar and violet. The palate is velvety and rich, with underlying tone and structure. Dark fruit flavors are accompanied by hints of roasted coffee, dark chocolate and oak spice that carry through to a long, satisfying finish.
