2014 Chappellet Vineyards 'Pritchard Hill'Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
We're pleased to offer you the 2014 Chappellet Pritchard Hill bottling. Parker says the wine "is a stunner and one of the great, great 2014s. Inky purple with blueberry and blackberry fruit, cassis, licorice, graphite and white flowers, the wine is stunningly concentrated, full-bodied and seemingly one of the greatest of the 2014s. Still youthful, with at least 25-30 years of upside potential at the minimum, this is a wine for patient connoisseurs."
First, take a great terroir: volcanic terraces high on Pritchard Hill that were first planted in 1882. It's no accident that Colgin, Continuum, and Bryant Family set up shop in the neighborhood.
Then we have 47 years of accumulated knowledge from some of the best winemaking talent the valley has ever seen: Philip Togni, Joe Cafaro, Tony Soter, Cathy Corison and finally Philip Corallo-Titus, who has been at the winemaking helm since 1990.
And finally there's the huge Chappellet family, dedicated as a team to farm great grapes and make superb wines since 1968.
