Chappellet 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill

96 Points by Robert Parker:

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 André 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. 750 ML

Description

Details

This wine has a rich and powerful nose of dark chocolate, anise and cardamom. Seamlessly integrated tannins balance the rich mouthfeel beautifully, underscoring flavors of dark fruit, cassis, roasted coffee and cedar. The mouth-coating richness persists long into the finish, where power and finesse resonate on the palate.
