It is a benchmark for the long-lived hillside wines of the Napa Valley; full of structure and aging potential, yet seductively forward in its varietal character. The dry, rocky soils of Pritchard Hill produce small, intensely flavorful grapes.
Crop thinning allows for full, even ripening and further elevates flavor complexity. A classic expression of hillside Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, this luxurious wine displays concentrated aromas of ripe black cherry, cassis and dark chocolate, along with oak-inspired notes of espresso, cinnamon, clove and cigar box.
On the supple, mouth-filling palate, elegantly refined tannins underscore the rich dark berry and blackcurrant flavors, with hints of nutmeg, anise and cedar adding sophistication to the long, voluptuous finish. This savory Napa Valley cabernet grows on Pritchard Hill, where Donn Chappellet settled in 1967. These volcanic hills east of St.Helena provided Phillip Corallo Titus with the raw material for a refined and lilting 2016. He didnt overextract the wine, so the tannic detail lasts with umami notes of freshly dug earth, black mushrooms and blueberry skins. The fruit is integrated, with dark blueberry density and brighter purple notes feeling refined, so that the pretty side of cabernet is on viewa rarity among the muscle cabs of Napa Valley.
