The 2007 Estate Red marks the culmination of thirty years of site-specific research with the goal of creating a single red wine that evokes the unique character of the Chalk Hill Estate. Aromas are varied and complex, featuring warm black raspberries, crème de cassis, violets, roasted herbs, and pipe tobacco. The palate delivers concentrated red fruits, dried cranberries and black plum leading to a more savory element of sage and black pepper. Textured yet silky, the wine finishes long and is enjoyable upon release, but will also age beautifully for the next 15+ years.
Blend: 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Malbec, 13% Merlot, 11% Petit Verdot, 1% Carmenère
Perhaps the finest Estate Red to date is the 2007. Its dense ruby/purple hue is followed by blackberry, cassis, cedar, and licorice characteristics, supple tannins, a more accessible personality, full body, and admirable purity, texture, and length. Drink this beauty over the next 2-3 decades.
Made in the modern style, this Cabernet-based Bordeaux-style blend was aged in mostly new French oak for 20 months, so it shows plenty of toasty, oaky notes. It's softly delicious, with tiers of raspberry, cherry, red currant, milk chocolate, violet and dried herb flavors. wrapped into the smoothest possible tannins. An extrodinarily beautiful wine...
Bold, rich, graceful and full-bodied, offering a wonderful beam of ripe blackberry, currant and wild berry, with touches of spice and tobacco leaf. Full-bodied, firming on the finish, where the flavors gain depth and maintain persistence. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Carmenere.
