Quick Overview

This vintage has yielded a classic expression of mountain-grown Cabernet Franc that is both elegant and intense. Varietal aromas of cherry, blackberry and violets fill the glass alongside hints of green olive, bay leaf, anise, cedar and mocha—all of which add a Bordeaux-like complexity to the nose. On the palate, the tannins are plush and supple, underscoring the wine’s rich body and velvety mouthfeel. Focused red and black fruit flavors, as well as notes of sweet oak, roast coffee beans and sage carry through to a lingering and viscous finish that highlights the sophistication and personality of Cabernet Franc grown on Pritchard Hill.
Chappellet Cabernet Franc

Details

The Chappellet Cabernet Franc is a traditional Bordeaux blend with Cabernet Franc at its base. The original vines were planted in 1989, making Cabernet Franc a relatively new addition to Pritchard Hill. This variety thrives on the hill’s volcanic soils, where conditions are ideal for developing ripe, concentrated flavors. The wine was bottled after spending 18 months in French Oak barrels (60% new).
