2006 Chappellet "Pritchard Hill Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
This is the real deal for Napa Cab! Love the nose of currants, chocolate, licorice, and dried flowers. Wow, this is class. Full and super refined, with ultra-fine tannins and a long, long finish. Absolutely fabulous, but give this two or three years of bottle age before giving it a try.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The prodigious 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill Estate showcases this extraordinary area. Blue fruits intermixed with black raspberries, black currants, blackberries, camphor, spring flowers, and a forest floor-like character contribute to the complex aromatics. Opaque purple-colored, full-bodied, and seamlessly constructed with superb integration of wood, tannin, alcohol, and acidity, this beauty will be even better with 5-7 years of bottle age, and should last 30 or more years.
Firm and concentrated, with taut, vibrant mineral, blackberry, wild berry and black cherry fruit that gives this a rich core of flavors. Deep and concentrated, ending with a long, persistent finish. Best from 2011 through 2017.
