    Bright ruby-red. A bit wilder on the nose than the 2011, offering scents of black raspberry, mocha, smoke, tar, game and roasted earth. Supple and very sweet in the mouth, showing an almost candied quality to its black raspberry and chocolate flavors. This is jammy in a positive way, and I suspect it will lose some of its baby fat by the time it's bottled at the end of this year. Finishes with substantial tongue-dusting tannins and excellent length. I look forward to trying this next year in its finished form

    Living up to the potential predicted last year, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill Estate is fabulous. One hundred percent Cabernet Sauvignon aged 22 months in 80% new French oak, there are 500 cases of this terrific wine. With its inky purple color, a glorious nose of blackberry and blueberry liqueur, full-bodied mouthfeel, dense, pure notes interwoven with camphor, charcoal embers and spring flowers, this is stunning stuff and a great example of Pritchard Hill's potential. Drink now-2025+.

    Smooth-textured, with supple tannins woven into the granite and graphite flavors, balanced by dried dark berry and light cedary oak. Maintains a graceful profile throughout, ending elegant and graceful.
