Winemaker Notes :

A classic expression of hillside Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, this
luxurious wine displays concentrated aromas of ripe black cherry, cassis
and dark chocolate, along with oak-inspired notes of espresso, cinnamon,
clove and cigar box. On the supple, mouth-filling palate, elegantly refined
tannins underscore the rich dark berry and blackcurrant flavors, with hints
of nutmeg, anise and cedar adding sophistication to the long, voluptuous
finish.

Blend: 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 8% Malbec

Wine & Spirits"A savory Napa Valley cabernet grows on Pritchard Hill, where Donn Chappellet settled in 1967. These volcanic hills east of St. Helena provided Phillip Corallo Titus with the raw material for a refined and lilting 2016. He didn't overextract the wine, so the tannic detail lasts with umami notes of freshly dug earth, black mushrooms and blueberry skins. The fruit is integrated, with dark blueberry density and brighter purple notes feeling refined, so that the pretty side of cabernet is on view-a rarity among the muscle cabs of Napa Valley."

Wine AdvocateA blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot and 8% Malbec, the deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature reveals intense notes of warm cassis, preserved plums and Black Forest cake plus hints of garrigue, cedar chest and menthol. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is delicately styled with fresh, energetic black fruits and a light chew of tannins, finishing earthy. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
