Product Overview

The 2016 Chappellet Pritchard Hill Cabernet Sauvignon is the most sought-after wine in the winery's portfolio. This limited-production Cabernet Sauvignon represents the pinnacle of Chappellet winemaking and embodies the elegant power and complexity of Pritchard Hill winegrowing. Pure, powerful, and beautifully structured, this opulent wine captures the essence of great mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon. Alluring aromas of blueberry, blackberry, dark chocolate, and espresso rise from the glass, followed by notes of anise, smoke, and spice. The luxurious fruit continues on the palate, where lush flavors of ripe berry and dark cherry are framed by a beautiful structure and mouthcoating tannins. The finish is rich and lingering, accented by notes of toasted oak, clove, and nutmeg.


Varietal Composition: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, 5% Malbec
Appellation: Napa Valley AVA (Pritchard Hill)
Aging: 22 months, French oak, 100% new

"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill has a very deep garnet-purple color. To smell the nose is like hearing angels trumpeting at the pearly gates! The most incredible and evocative scents come spilling out of the glass, conjuring notions of freshly crushed black raspberries, wild blueberries, red and black currant compote and raspberry leaves with subtler hints of roses, violets, tilled soil, cigar box and fragrant earth. Medium to full-bodied and achingly graceful in the mouth, the perfumed black and red fruits seemingly dance on the palate with a very firm yet beautifully fine-grained texture and just the right amount of freshness, finishing with epic persistence. Hallelujah—this is perfection!!" -LPB, 10/29/18

"Just as it was from barrel, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill is magnificent. Powerful and explosive on the palate, the 2016 simply has it all. The interplay of fruit density, power and vibrancy is simply dazzling. Raspberry jam, mocha, wild flowers, mint and cedar open up in the glass, but it is the wine's textural brilliance, stature and vibrancy that leave the deepest impression. Time in the glass brings out a more floral and red-toned character to round things out in style." -AG, Dec/2018
