Fruit still young, could last another 20 years.

Chappellet wine dinner. I've not had much of their wines and wanted to see if they are worth a visit when we are out for our yearly Napa trip in February!

The big boy 💪🏼. Deep ruby core in the glass that approaches black in color. Aromatics aren't massive, but it even smells refined. Black cherry, baking spices, powerful tannins. Lush fruits on the palate. Finish is very strong and lasts almost a minute. No doubt a wine that can go the distance. Easily go up 1-2 points in a few years.

Showing very nicely for a 2013. First Chappellet Pritchard Hill and WOW is what I have to say. On a completely different level from Chappellet's other labels. Parker says don't touch but if you are in a bind this '13 is ready. However, it will be huge in a decade or two. Inky and full of berries. #pritchardhill #chappellet

The flagship wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 6% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot aged 22 months in 100% new French oak. This is a 40- to 50-year wine and simply compelling. Inky bluish/purple with a stunning nose of white flowers, crushed rock, blueberry, black raspberry and cassis, this is a great, great effort in this vintage, which is not that surprising, but this youthful wine still seems in its infancy and certainly has huge upside to it. It’s very deep and full-bodied, but still coiled very tight and restrained, this should turn out to be a tour de force and a great offering in 2013. Don’t touch it for another 5-7 years.

Fantastic, as other drinkers in party noted, can taste the vanilla from the barrel

Got the experience of being in the first tasting of the 2013 Pritchard Hill from Chappallett, simply amazing. The fruit on the front, the balance of the estate mountain fruit. This will be a bottle I would love to re taste in 10 and 20 years because I believe it could lay down that long.
