These Pritchard Hill vineyards have produced an opulent, fleshy, divine 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon. This deep, concentrated, full-bodied effort is extraordinarily young, but loaded with blueberry and black currant fruit intermixed with hints of camphor and incense. Drink this gorgeous, seriously endowed 2007 over the next two decades
Expensive, yes, but a very fine wine, showcasing what Napa Cab can do at a world-class level. But you want to cellar it, because it's all primary fruit, unintegrated oak and tannins now. Beyond the sweet cedar application you'll find deep, noble flavors of black currants and minerals, wrapped into the finest tannins imaginable. Hold until 2013, at least, and should provide good drinking for many years.
Sleek and restrained, with trim dried currant, berry, sage, mineral and anise flavors that are full-bodied, gaining depth and complexity on the finish, where the tannins firm up. Drink now through 2017. 718 cases made.
