Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

An impressive blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, and 5% Merlot, the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill reveals some elevated toasty oak in the nose, but the fruit quality, richness, and overall intensity suggest the wood will be absorbed completely in another 3-4 years. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by an oaky nose revealing scents of blue fruits, black currants, licorice, and spice box. This full-bodied Cabernet possesses sweet fruit, good integration of acidity and tannin, and a long finish. Give it another two years in the bottle, and drink it over the following 12-15.

Our group did a big cab tasting dinner this past week and this was the clear winner among most going up against a Maiden 04, Colgin Tychson Hill 04, Dalla Valle 97, Dominus 90, Montelena 94 and a Leonetti Reserve. This drinks like a grand Bordeaux, still lots of fruit but maturing very nicely and probably could go a lot longer. A real finesse wine ripe with berries, vanilla, subtle oak. They hit this one out of the park.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
