Lot #427. Chappellet Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill 2012

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 99+ RP.
"The dense purple-colored 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill Estate (one of Napa’s fashionable go-to terroirs) exhibits a striking bouquet of spring flowers, blueberries, raspberries and blackcurrants. This is a compelling wine with profound depth and flavor, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and a velvety integration of tannin, acidity and wood. Pushing perfection in Cabernet Sauvignon, this multidimensional, skyscraper-like offering has all the intensity one expects, but it never comes across as heavy. This gives it an ethereal character that is nearly impossible to articulate, but genius is often hard to explain. It is clearly a major superstar of a great vintage." eRobertParker.com #215, Oct 2014
Provenance: The Dogwood Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
