Our 2007 Pritchard Hill Cabernet Sauvignon was blended using the most exceptional fruit from our finest vineyard blocks. As a result, it is both complex and complete, displaying all of the elements that have come to define great Pritchard Hill Cabernet Sauvignon. The color is deep, dark and saturated, seeming to stain the glass, while the aromas offer lovely violet notes that mingle with elements of sweet blackberry, anise, and espresso. On the palate, this wine immediately reveals sweet berry and chocolate flavors that morph into a liqueur-like veneer. Smooth, layered tannins and an excellent structure leave a silky impression through-out the long, satisfying finish. This wine is no aperitif; to enjoy its fullest expression, its substantial character and flavor deserve to be paired with roasted or grilled meats, or with rich cheeses.
77% Cabernet Sauvignon; 12% Petit Verdot; 8% Malbec; 3% Other. Leaping out of the glass with its intensely fruity, keenly focused, layered aromas of black currants, hints of blackberries and creme caramel all tightly wrapped up in youthful vivacity that screams "aging potential", this deep and dramatic effort delivers an equally full measure of generous yet barely evolved flavor on the palate. Its full and supple yet somewhat fleshy palatefeel is may invite early drinking, but its underlying structure insures that it will improve for years to come.
Sleek, rich, intense and beautifully balanced, with a complex mix of black currant and black cherry, plus red and black licorice. Firm, focused, expansive and layered, ending with classic Bordeaux-like cedar, tobacco and cigar box notes. Drink now through 2020.
The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill boasts glorious notes of flowers, blueberries, blackberries, boysenberries, plums and incense. Full-bodied and layered with tremendous depth as well as purity and that nobility of great Cabernet Sauvignon that very few regions in the world can achieve, this youngster, although approachable and seductive now, should evolve for 25-30 more years. Statisticians may be interested in knowing that the Signature is a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot, 1% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc. The Pritchard Hill is composed of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, 8% Malbec, 2% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc.
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.
