The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill is a wine that should only be bought by the very patient. An infant today, the 2009 is all about promise and potential. The wine possesses stunning depth and concentration, with fabulous balance and tons of personality. The only thing it needs is time. This dark, brooding Cabernet Sauvignon is a lot to look forward to. (AG)
If years away from showing anything remotely like elegance and most definitely not a wine that will win the hearts of those whose prize restraint above all else, this deep, fully realized youngster combines richness with lavish, blackcurrant fruit that marks Napa Valley Cabernet at its best. Big and bold and very full on the palate with plenty of gritty young tannins, it is a generous and wonderfully well-focused wine of enormous potential. It demands a half-decade of age at the least, and it will be in fine form some twenty years from now. *Three Stars*
Dark and saturated in color, this has earthy and meaty aromas like bloody, rare steak and charred bone—that sort of proteinous spirit. The actual fruit flavor is incredibly rich and concentrated in blackberries, black currants and crisp bacon. The impression is of a sweet, delicious Cabernet that’s a touch warm in alcohol, but lush and refined.
Saturated medium ruby. Brooding aromas of blackberry, licorice and violet lifted by a fresh mineral quality. Then surprisingly pliant, even creamy, following the nose, conveying an almost chocolatey ripeness to its black fruit and mineral flavors. This impressively mouthfilling wine shows a captivating subtle sweetness that may be giving it a deceptive accessibility today. The very long, ripely tannic finish boasts considerable power and repeating minerality, promising continued development in bottle over the next 15 years. (ST)
