From Tim and Marcia Mondavi's rocky, estate Pritchard Hill property comes this blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, 6% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. A substantially built wine, from an extreme, high-elevation site, it is equally extreme, thickly dripping in dense, jammy tobacco and bittersweet chocolate, with dry, burly tannins and a generous build. Cellar through 2022.
