About Chappellet 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, Pritchard Hill, Napa Valley
This limited production collectible Cabernet Sauvignon represents the pinnacle of Chappellet winemaking, and embodies the elegant power and complexity of Pritchard Hill winegrowing. Like the great Bordeaux wines that first inspired Donn Chappellet, this wine is crafted by blending Cabernet Sauvignon with other classic Bordeaux varietals. 2014 was another excellent vintage. It's a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petit Verdot and 5% Malbec that's aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak. James Suckling scored this 98 points and Robert Parker scored it 99 saying "The flagship wine, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill, 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petit Verdot and 5% Malbec, is a stunner and one of the great, great 2014s. Inky purple with blueberry and blackberry fruit, cassis, licorice, graphite and white flowers, the wine is stunningly concentrated, full-bodied and seemingly one of the greatest of the 2014s. Still youthful, with at least 25-30 years of upside potential at the minimum, this is a wine for patient connoisseurs. Anticipated maturity: 2023-2050."
