    Fairly massive, with tannins to match, this is rangy now, offering dried herb and juicy yet dry dark berry flavors. There's lots of cedary oak, yet on the finish this straightens out nicely.

    The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Elevation 1147 is going to require serious patience. It boasts stunning depth and power, but very much in the context of the house style, which is to say the Elevation 1147 remains a wine of exquisite elegance and finesse. This dazzling Cabernet Sauvignon caresses every corner of the palate with layers of beautifully delineated fruit. The 2010 is an exceptionally polished wine loaded with potential. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030.

  • 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.
