Chappellet Pritchard Hill 2010


Oh, man. Chappellet is one of my favorite producers from Napa, and this is the finest of their wines. The Pritchard Hill estates makes amazing, delicious, inky Cabernets.

This one was no different: a deep plum color, with scents of dark chocolate shavings on the nose, and a deep, mellow oakiness.

The wine was bursting with black fruits, licorice, and that same dark chocolate notes, with an intense, lustrous finish.

A frequent favorite and one I can't wait to sample again (and again and again).
