Pritchard Hill Region
Tony Arcudi has fashioned a brilliant 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill, which is all Cabernet that spent 20 months in 66% new French oak. Beautiful blue fruits, purple iris, spice, and forest floor notes all flow to a medium to full-bodied, seamless, and elegant 2016 that has moderate tannins and the purity and elegance that’s the hallmark of the vintage. You can drink it any time over the coming 15+ years.
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Black Sears Vineyard is another beautiful wine that has more high-toned notes of spring flowers, bay leaf, forest floor, and blueberries. With full-bodied richness, again, an incredible floral character, fine tannins, and beautiful length on the finish, drink this classic Howell Mountain beauty over the coming 15-20 years. There are just a little over 100 cases made.
