2016 Chappellet Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill Estate Vineyard  (Napa Valley) 97

Luscious, ripe, rich, fat, dense and full-bodied, the showy wine pops with layers of sweet, juicy, ripe, black and blue fruit, smoke, vanilla, licorice, and a flowery background note. If you like upfront, exuberant fruit, you can enjoy this young. Else, wait 5 years for everything to calm down and fall into place. 97 Points

2009 Chappellet Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill Estate Vineyard  (Napa Valley) 95

This is a great example of California Cabernet that pairs ample layers of super, ripe berries with power, concentration and oak, yet does not come close to being over the top. Everything is in balance in this outstanding wine. 95 Points

Licorice, smoke, truffles, blackberries and earthy scents were in abundance with little effort. On the palate, the wine is soft, polished, round, lush and fresh, with a long, expansive, chocolate covered dark berry finish. 94 Points

1973 Chappellet Cabernet Sauvignon  (Napa Valley) 75

There is very little left in the tank here. And that small tank is nearly on empty. The cedar, tobacco, herb and earthy nose is better than the smidgeon of fruit remaining on the palate. And this bottle was perfectly stored. Nothing lives forever. 75 Points
