Pure, powerful and beautifully structured, this opulent wine captures the essence of great mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon. Concentrated aromas of blueberry and blackberry rise from the glass, followed by notes of espresso, anise and dark chocolate. The ripe dark berry elements are echoed on the lush palate, where they are underscored by mouthcoating tannins and hints of toasted oak, clove and nutmeg. The finish is rich and lingering, resonating with alluring layers of black cherry and spice.
About the Wine
The most sought-after wine in our portfolio, this limited-production Cabernet Sauvignon represents the pinnacle of Chappellet winemaking and embodies the elegant power and complexity of Pritchard Hill winegrowing. Like the great Bordeaux wines that first inspired Donn Chappellet, this wine is crafted by blending Cabernet Sauvignon with other classic Bordeaux varietals. The wine was aged for 22 months in 100 percent new French oak. Grown on our rocky, mountainside vineyard, our Cabernets have consistently displayed an ability to age for several decades.
