Wine Review: This deep purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Chappellet is Excellent!. It opens with a black currant and black cherry bouquet with hints of black raspberry, tobacco, and cedar. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced, soft and very smooth. This flavor profile is a loam, mild black currant, blackberry, and gentle oak blend with notes of crushed stone minerality. We also detected hints of black pepper and black licorice mixed in. The finish is dry and well-managed fine-grained tannins show very nice length. The Panel would pair this terrific Cab with a porterhouse steak or venison stew. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Offering great depth and stunning richness, the 2018 Hideaway Cabernet Sauvignon displays alluring aromas of sun-warmed blackberries, cassis, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg, as well as a subtle high-toned perfumed note. On the palate, it strikes a lovely balance between opulence and elegance, with intense, flowing flavors of wild berries, dark fruit, chocolate and spice framed by exceptional energy and an age-worthy structure that is one of the signatures of Pritchard Hill's terroir.
