Critical Acclaim:

“100 points.

“Also inky colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill comes from the estate vineyard on Pritchard Hill and spent 22 months in new French oak. It has a similar level of purity, as well as incredible minerality, to go with notes of crème de cassis, scorched earth, crushed rock, and graphite. Reminiscent of licking a rock with its insane level of minerality, this full-bodied beauty is tight and closed on the palate, yet is just loaded with potential. It’s only for those with cold cellars and needs forgotten for 7-8 years, but will keep for 4-5 decades. Bravo!” 100 Points: As good as it gets. These wines reach the peak of my personal scale of quality.” – Jeb Dunnuck

“97 points.

“An extraordinary wine of profound and complex character displaying all the attributes expected of a classic wine of its variety. Wines of this caliber are worth a special effort to find, purchase, and consume. Opaque purple-black in color, the intensely scented 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill is already strutting its stuff, revealing gregarious crème de cassis, baked plums and blackberry preserves notes over notions of cigar box, new leather, charcuterie and tar, plus menthol and sautéed herbs wafts. Full-bodied, concentrated and expressive in the mouth, it features firm, finely grained tannins and plenty of freshness framing the generous fruit, finishing on a lingering herbal note. 2017-2037.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
