Chappellet 2005 Pritchard Hill Estate Vineyard Cabernet Franc
Carrying the designation "Pritchard Hill Estate Vineyard", this wine is crafted from only the choicest vineyard blocks of the vintage. The grapes are individually selected, creating a wine that achieves a level of excellence that merits the "Pritchard Hill" distinction. After first planting this varietal in 1989 to complement the blends of our other Bordeaux varietals, we discovered that Cabernet Franc thrives on Pritchard Hill's volcanic terroir. The warmth of Napa Valley's celebrated sunshine bathes the hillside vineyards, creating ideal conditions for the ripe, concentrated flavors that distinguish our Cabernet Franc. This extraordinary wine is prized for its depth of flavor and its sumptuousness.
