Crafted from 100% mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon from the most coveted blocks of our Pritchard Hill estate vineyard
Pritchard 49 commemorates the Chappellet family's 49th vintage on Pritchard Hill and their half-century of winegrowing experience
Embodying the power and complexity that have made Pritchard Hill famous, it offers voluptuous fruit, vivid spice and extraordinary structure
Phillip Corallo-Titus, Winemaker
Because I've worked with our vineyards for so long and know each block so intimately, I am able to focus on the individual characteristics of each vineyard lot. This diversity allows us to enjoy a great deal of freedom during the blending process, while also adding immense depth and complexity to our wines.
