Cabernet Pritchard Hill Napa
Only 1 left!
The flagship wine, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, which is always 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, has an amazing, pure, crème de cassis set of aromatics and flavors, an inky purple color, gorgeous purity, full-bodied opulence and all of the characteristics one expects from this great, first-growth quality vineyard on a steep hillside on Pritchard Hill. The finish goes on for a good 45-50 seconds and the wine shows slightly more structure than many 2014s, but is super-rich and concentrated, with at least 25-30 years of future drinking ahead of it as well as evolution.

Dark ruby. Utterly primary aromas of blackberry, blueberry and licorice. Extremely backward but fine-grained and energetic, showing captivating spicy lift to the youthful blue and black fruit flavors. This compellingly vibrant, unevolved wine practically tastes like a barrel sample. Elegant, vibrant and very pure, finishing with firm, building tannins and terrific energy. This wine, bottled in July of 2016, was racked only twice: after the malolactic fermentation and again in advance of the bottling. -- Stephen Tanzer 95+
