by the notion that Bacchus loves the hills, the
Chappellets followed the advice of renowned winemaker
André Tchelistcheff and settled on Pritchard
Hill’s rocky slopes in 1967, becoming the first
Napa Valley winery to plant vineyards exclusively
on high-elevation hillsides.
Hill’s rugged terroir has become legendary for
producing wines of great intensity and depth. As
a result, Chappellet wines have consistently received
the highest praise from critics, and are sought
after by the world's premier collectors.
wine has enticing, rich aromas of sweet, ripe plum,
Bing cherry and cassis, along with notes of mocha,
roasted coffee, cedar and baking spices, all firmly
supported by delicious hints of French oak. The
round and supple palate has weighty texture and
a smooth, mouth-filling structure. Though there
are abundant ripe red and black fruit flavors,
there is also an elegant complexity to this wine
that comes from artful blending.
