    Aromas of cedar, sandalwood, dried currant and sage take on a minerally quality on the palate that's somewhat simpler. About the same as when it was released. -- 2000 California Cabernet blind retrospective (August 2010). Drink now through 2014. 800 cases made.

    One of the surprising successes in an extremely irregular vintage, Chappellet's 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill boasts beautiful aromas of blueberries, creme de cassis, licorice, and flowers. Medium-bodied with a real mid-palate as well as follow through (something many 2000s lack), and a supple finish, this beauty should age nicely for 8-10 years.

    Not what I had hoped. Maybe a little over the hill?

Founded in 1967, Chappellet is one of the most established family-owned wineries in California. The portfolio of wines is still remarkably focused on what got them where they are today. Estate-grown Chardonnay and Cabernet are still the benchmarks here. Sited on the slopes of Pritchard Hill overlooking Lake Hennessey on the eastern side of Rutherford, neighbors include renowned producers Colgin, David Arthur, Girard, Long and Ovid.

California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
