95+ points Jeb Dunnuck: "The flagship is the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill, and this cuvée just about always represents the pinnacle of mountain Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. The 2017 is 100% estate Cabernet Sauvignon and reveals a deep purple color as well a stunning bouquet of blue fruits, burning embers, dark chocolate, sage brush, and crushed rocks. It's powerful, full-bodied, and concentrated, and the tannins clamp down on the finish enough to warrant hiding this beauty in the cellar for a solid 5-7 years. If drinking today, give it an hour or two in a decanter. It's another stunning wine from this estate. Drink: 2025-2050. (1/31/20)"
95 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill is a positively stellar wine in this challenging year. Crème de cassis, licorice, lavender, chocolate, spice and espresso all run through the 2017. This is an especially inky, flamboyant style for Chappellet, but all the elements come together very nicely. Drink: 2022-2032. (Jan 2020)"
95 points and 'Cellar Selection,' Wine Enthusiast: "From the producer's mountainous estate, this is blended with 10% Petit Verdot and 5% Malbec. It displays the power of elevation, revealing dense layers of sage and black currant highlighted by cedar and graphite. Cellaring is recommended; enjoy from 2027–2032. Alcohol 14.5%. (Apr 2021)"
94 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and well-proportioned, with loads of cassis, plum reduction and melted black licorice notes melding together, picking up graphite and apple wood accents through the muscular but defined finish. A late kick of fruit on the finish is matched by minerally cut. Best from 2023 through 2036. (3/10/21)"
