Tasting Notes

V96

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill is a wine that should only be bought by the very patient. An infant today, the 2009 is all about promise and potential. The wine possesses stunning depth and concentration, with fabulous balance and tons of personality. The only thing it needs is time. This dark, brooding Cabernet Sauvignon is a lot to look forward to. The 2009 is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petite Verdot and 10% Malbec. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2034.

WE94

Dark and saturated in color, this has earthy and meaty aromas like bloody, rare steak and charred bone—that sort of proteinous spirit. The actual fruit flavor is incredibly rich and concentrated in blackberries, black currants and crisp bacon. The impression is of a sweet, delicious Cabernet that's a touch warm in alcohol, but lush and refined.

The Winery

Chappellet

"“Chappellet is a wine-lover’s wine:eloquent to the sentient.”— Hugh Johnson"

The Chappellet’s romance with Pritchard Hill began when Donn Chappellet first glimpsed the mountain’s spectacular vistas in the late 1960s. Inspired by the notion that “Bacchus loves the hills” and following the advice of legendary winemaker Andre Tchelistcheff, he settled his family on the rocky eastern slopes of the Napa Valley. There, on Pritchard Hill’s serene hillsides the Chappellet family has cultivated their mountain vineyard to produce some of the Napa Valley’s most acclaimed Bordeaux varietal wines.
