Absolutely riveting aromas of currants, cocoa, very rich oak and layers of minerals and loamy earth set this serious wine apart from the rest of the field from the very first sniff, and its opulent, fully stuffed flavors make good on the promise. It is as deep and as rich as any of the Cabernets under current review, and its stands among the very best of the vintage when it comes to structure, balance and wine-making polish as well. A convincingly ageworthy wine that will grow for a decade or more, it is nothing short of a tour de force effort and confirms Chappellet’s pre-eminent place as a maker of superb Cabernet Sauvignon.

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.
