Winemaker's Notes

A selection of the very best barrels from our finest vineyard blocks, this wine seamlessly balances intense berry fruit with rich tannins and a supple harmonious texture. Concentrated aromatics of black cherry, plum, dark chocolate, roast coffee and smoke segue to lush mouth-coating flavors of ripe berries, red currant, anise, vanilla, nutmeg and cedar. To add even greater depth and complexity to the powerful core of Pritchard Hill Cabernet, the wine was blended with our most expressive selections of Petit Verdot and Malbec. The end result is a robust, layered and concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon offering beautiful cool-vintage structure and age-worthiness.

Critical Acclaim

"
#24 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008

Big, ripe and complex, but light on its feet. An elegant, spicy mix of rich currant, anise, toasty oak, espresso and subtle herbal scents, all of which fold together nicely, ending with a long, persistent finish. Best from 2010 through 2016."

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
