Chappellet Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill Estate 2006

Chappellet Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill Estate 750ML 2006      
Sku: 13045

This highly regarded, limited production wine, crafted with the finest fruit from Chappellet`s rugged Pritchard Hill Vineyards, has won the favor of both critics and connoisseurs.

The wine with deep, crimson-color, displays classic hillside Cabernet aromas of ripe berry fruit, balanced by a background of toasty French oak, chocolate, anise and spice. The mouth shows big structural tannins in balance with the lush ripe fruit and complex spice and earth tones. The fruit is supported by the intensity and extract of the wine. Drink now to experience the youthful intensity of the wine, but the patient collector who cellars it for 8 to 20 years will enjoy the rewards of bottle bouquet, softness and additional complexity achieved with bottle aging.

The prodigious 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill Estate showcases this extraordinary area. Blue fruits intermixed with black raspberries, black currants, blackberries, camphor, spring flowers, and a forest floor-like character contribute to the complex aromatics. Opaque purple-colored, full-bodied, and seamlessly constructed with superb integration of wood, tannin, alcohol, and acidity, this beauty will be even better with 5-7 years of bottle age, and should last 30 or more years.”

Firm and concentrated, with taut, vibrant mineral, blackberry, wild berry and black cherry fruit that gives this a rich core of flavors. Deep and concentrated, ending with a long, persistent finish. Best from 2011 through 2017. 3,100 cases made. –JL
