Pritchard Hill Wine!

They sell most of their wine via their mailing list, we are one of the few places in the country to get their wines.  We are the only place in the U.S. that list this wine on Wine-Searcher!
2019 Juicy Rebound Haute Montagne Cabernet Sauvignon...$74.99
only 175 cases produced
Pritchard Hill
High in the prime mountain vineyards, above Lake Hennessy in Napa Valley, at an altitude 1400’,we found an exceptional source for our 2019 Haute Montagne cabernet. This is Cabernet for Cabernet lovers; with power, depth, and definition to spare. The 2019 vintage was near-perfect growing conditions in Napa Valley, even though the Kincaid fire in Sonoma County threatened as Napa’s cabernet harvest came to a close at the end of October. Generous, even weather gave reduced yields and created wines of optimal ripness, great concentration, juicy acidity, and fine tannic structure. Add a first-class mountain vineyard to this equation and the resulting wine has potential for greatness. The caliber of the vineyard is illustrated by the substance and distinction of this wine. Finely structured black fruit; blackberry, cassis, plum and violets with aromas and flavors which unfold in the glass, hint at the potential for aging and the rewards for doing so. Here we find classical winemaking, French oak barrels, in the tradition of Bordeaux, but with the voice of California. This wine speaks to balance, structure, fine texture, freshness and complex flavors. Rather than demanding your attention, it invites you to enjoy and explore. 

Pritchard Hill is very special
Chappellet winery has a trademark on the name “Pritchard Hill” that is why you do not see it on more labels even though it is considered the "First Growth" of Napa.   These amazing wines come from Pritchard Hill: Colgin, Bryant Family, Brand, Tor, and Continuum to name a few of the greats.  They sell for $300-$1000 per bottle!!  This wine is a steal!
