  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 85

    Spicy and earthy, with a Zinfandel-like wild berry edge to the flavors that makes it distinctive. Ripe, intense, racy and persistent, though not what you'd expect from a Napa Cabernet. 650 cases made.

  • Brothers David and Bob Long began planting their Pritchard Hill Estate property in 1978 and made their Cabernet Sauvignon debut eighteen years later with the spectacular 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon and Elevation 1147. Production of the flagship reds remains small. They produce a Super Tuscan blend called Meritaggiom as well as Sangiovese, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Bob Egelhoff has been winemaker for two decades.

    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.
