"Black cherry, smoke, licorice, plums and incense burst from the glass in Chappellet's 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill. Inky, deep and somber, the 2006 remains quite tannic and in need of further bottle age. The tannins are a bit larger in feel and some angularity remains, yet the 2006 has enough pure depth to drink well for many years. Super-ripe black cherries, mocha, crème de cassis and blackberry jam meld into the opulent, full-throttle finish. This is another dark, brooding wine from Chappellet. Tasting the 2006, it is obvious to see just how far Chappellet has come in recent years. -AG"
