Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 91

($110; includes 5% petit verdot) Full ruby-red. Cassis, black cherry, plum, mocha and pipe tobacco on the nose. Big, broad and velvety, with excellent volume and richness for the vintage. Flavors of cassis, Valrhona chocolate and sweet oak spices. Maintains its focus on the back end, which features thick but broad tannins and excellent length. Impressive California cabernet. Also tasted: 2000 Old Vine Cuvee Napa Valley, 2000 Sangiovese Napa Valley, 2000 Merlot Napa Valley.

The impressive 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill boasts a dense purple color in addition to notes of blueberries, cassis, vanilla, and lead pencil shavings. The complex aromatics are accompanied by a medium to full-bodied, rich, structured, well-defined effort that will benefit from a few more years of cellaring. It should age for 10-15+ years. Kudos to Chappellet!

Wine Spectator | 92

A big, ripe, expressive style, brimming with rich currant, blackberry, new shoe leather and spice notes. Very well-focused, intense and concentrated, with firm, tight tannins. Needs time.

Amazing, lucious wine. Still young, tons of fruit, great nose, smooth finish, rivals a Bordeaux first growth
