Probably one of the best wines I have ever had. Absolutely great! Super floral and rich with nice color and balance just starting to open as a 2012. Thanks Austin for bringing these to the Napa Vintage Report. I’m very thankful to drink these wine way way out of what I can buy.

Its truly great. I don't know why I expected more. Maybe because it costs $415 per bottle and for half that price you can pluck an Insignia. Don't get me wrong. This is one of the greatest wines I've tasted... but where do we draw the line on price? Shafer's hillside select is better in this bracket

2012, stunning bright red fruit nose. Acid for days, Prichard Hill at its best

Drinks beautifully out of the gates. Silky. Tobacco. Dark fruit. Full bodied. Delicious, but I’d hold.

Delicious. Generous, lush, dark fruit (blue and cherry). Nose has forest floor, vanilla.
