RATINGS: 91pts Wine Enthusiast; 90pts Wine Spectator

The Chappellet family's romance with Pritchard Hill started more than four decades ago when Donn and Molly Chappellet first glimpsed its magnificent vista of forests and wildflower filled meadows. Inspired by the notion that Bacchus loves the hills, the Chappellets followed the advice of renowned winemaker Andre Tchelistcheff and settled on Pritchard Hill's rocky slopes, becoming the first winery to plant vineyards exclusively on high elevation hillsides. From these Pritchard Hill vineyards, the Chappellets have been crafting extraordinary, age worthy wines since 1967. Pritchard Hill's rugged terroir has become legendary for producing wines with great intensity and depth qualities that define the world's finest Cabernet Sauvignons. As a result, Chappellet wines have consistently received the highest praise from critics, and are sought after by the world's premier collectors. Today, a second generation of the family has joined their parents in embracing the romance of Pritchard Hill. They are passionate about preserving the land and continuing what Donn and Molly began making extraordinary wines.

Tasting Notes: Wine Spectator 90 points- Aromas of jasmine, honeysuckle and citrus orchard offer a lively presence. Ends with a pithy citrus character on the aftertaste. Drink now through 2020. 3,000 cases made. JL.June/2017

Wine Enthusiast 91 points- For this wine, grapes are sourced from cooler sites within the valley, as well as from a high elevation site on Mount Veeder. Together, they provide a juicy, fleshy core of apple and pear girded by mineral laden texture and tension. The finish is marked by oak derived toast and brioche notes..December/2017
