Reviews For This Wine


 
Wine Advocate | 96

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.

Site Blog: dougwilder - the purely domestic wine blog Aroma: sun-warmed black fruits, chocolate, violet, rock salt and tapenade kissed with verbena and the faintest hint of clementine zest Palate: already enormously rich and dense with complex layering of chocolate, black fig, gooey medjools, blue plum and espresso Impression: in what should be currently fairly angular youth, the PHEV already displays rare precociousness that continues to evolve in the glass. showing beautifully polished tannins, depth and balanced intensity. It is still very early for 2006 Napa Cabernet, but as it stands right now, PHEV is my benchmark
