Awesome wine with the owner Cyril Chappellet.
Beautiful 2012 Prichard Hill Cab.Brambly red fruits, cedar, little smoke, and sultry tannins leading to a nice long finish. Smooth and jammy in texture. Nicely structured and layered. With secondary notes of chocolates espresso and slight tobacco. Oops a little too much fun that evening! He was there in spirit. Just edited rating with Cyril’s name. — 17 days ago
On my list of favorite Syrahs! A beautiful dark magenta color. Blackberry tart cherry, floral aromas jump from the glass with secondary notes of pencil lead and sandalwood and hints of bacon fat and milk chocolate floating. Taste - a smooth creamy and richly structured wine. Blueberry and cherry fruits still dominate with pepper, crushed rock and tar following. The finish is long with lingering notes of bitter chocolate and espresso and a touch of heat on the end but overall flavors are well integrated. Should open up even more throughput the evening. Luv the label. — 11 days ago
Tried this magnum wine about a year ago and now again this Mother’s Day— what a treat! A brilliant ruby red and with some bricking. Black cherry fruit, cassis, perfume and vanilla on the nose stand out followed by scents of cinnamon and eucalyptus. Taste — Smooth and juicy with fruit definitely present still. Initial flavors of cherry and plum, currants and milk chocolate sit on the palate with earthy notes of rock, herbs and espresso adding to its long finish. A wonderful Mother’s Day wine gift from my husband! — 9 days ago
