Chappellet 2007 Pritchard Hill Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley)

Cellar Selection

This is a monster Cabernet, in the best sense. Comprised of all five Bordeaux varieties, it's bone dry, enormously complex and firmly masculine, with very big, hard tannins. Concentration on the flavors shows layers of blackberries, black currants, blueberries, mocha, violets, sweet charred oak and a firm grounding of minerals. An outstanding wine from the Pritchard Hill region east of the Silverado Trail, but one that needs cellar time to resolve the tannins. Better after 2013, and should develop for many years after that.
