Chalk Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
At Chalk Hill, Cabernet Sauvignon wine growing is a composition of diverse microclimates, distinct clones, hillside terrains and sunny exposures. This wine lends aromas of cassis, autumn leaves, graphite and mocha which prelude a palate laced with bramble berries, earth, roasted espresso beans, tar and black spices.
Its youthful yet integrated tannin structure makes this wine worthy of aging for 5 to 10 years.
Rich, powerful and full-bodied, this is marked by thick Syrah-like road tar, graphite, dried currant, sage and herbal flavors that are concentrated and reflective of a cool climate for Cabernet. Drink now through 2016.
