Excellent wine. The bourbon notes are not over powering, and allow the berry flavor to come through. — 2 days ago
This one can come off as smokey. Like peat or wood smoke without the iodine/salinity. I personally like it, but it might not be everyone’s bag. — 7 days ago

2018 bevuto nel 2020. Che Barbera !! FAVOLOSA!!
COLORE come stermá. Vivace, limpido, lucente !!
Equilibrato. Armonico. Leggermente pochissimo alcool in più. Ma abbastanza integrato. Quasi impeccabile! Annatona — 12 hours ago
2018 vintage. No way one would situate this in the humble Bordeaux appellation in a blind tasting, but that shouldn't come as a surprise, since this estate is owned by Pierre Lurton (who also manages Cheval Blanc and Yquem). A blend of 80% Merlot with Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Give it some time to open up or decant, as this is structured to age. Interestingly it tastes like a compromise between right and left bank. The fruit is more black than red, the wine has a serious tannin structure, balanced by good acidity and serious length. Another Bordeaux boxing above its weight. Highly recommended. Abv. 14,5 %. — 8 days ago
12’ Chappellet Pritchard Hill Cabernet. First thing you notice is that deep purple color(syrup)
Full bodied & tight out the bottle. We decanted it for an hour and put it back in the bottle. Brought it to dinner. Just starting to come alive at this point.
Blackberry & blueberry fruits, cassis, licorice, sage. Elegance & finessed ... long finish. Hands-down the best I’ve had from this producer. Need to try the 2010 & 14 next. — 4 days ago
Young and already delicious. Much more to come with age. — 18 days ago
