    Another great 2005, this time from Chappellet, their 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill is a gorgeous blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Petit Verdot (that's a lot) and 6% Malbec. It tips the scales at 14.5% alcohol, which is lofty in a cool year such as 2005. Chappellet was way ahead of its time developing vineyards on Pritchard Hill, which is now one of the most expensive and desirable addresses for Napa Valley viticulture. It is easy to see why. This wine has a dense black/purple color, a beautiful nose of spring flowers, creme de cassis and blackberry, full-bodied texture, and stunning purity, richness and length. This is classic and still very youthful and exuberant at age ten. Look for it to evolve for another 20-25 years.

    Big, ripe and complex, but light on its feet. An elegant, spicy mix of rich currant, anise, toasty oak, espresso bean and subtle herbal scents, all of which fold together nicely, ending with a long, persistent finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Malbec.

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.
