TASTING NOTE'S:

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.

-Robert Parker, 96 pts

 

The flagship is the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill, and this cuvée just about always represents the pinnacle of mountain Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. The 2017 is 100% estate Cabernet Sauvignon and reveals a deep purple color as well a stunning bouquet of blue fruits, burning embers, dark chocolate, sage brush, and crushed rocks. It's powerful, full-bodied, and concentrated, and the tannins clamp down on the finish enough to warrant hiding this beauty in the cellar for a solid 5-7 years. If drinking today, give it an hour or two in a decanter. It's another stunning wine from this estate.

Blueberry, blackberry and blue-slate aromas. Medium body and firm, silky tannins. This is a little tight now, so give it two or three years to soften. Try after 2022.

-James Suckling, 93 pts

WINEMAKER'S NOTE:

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.
