Chalk Hill Estate Red Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

$74.99

A fantastic small-production Red from Chalk Hill - limited. previous vintage 96 Points Robert Parker:  "The 2013 Proprietary Red Estate is a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Malbec, 12% Petit Verdot and the rest Carignane, Syrah and Merlot. This is another titanic effort from proprietor Foley. A spectacular dense-purple color and sweet toasty oak intermixed with licorice, blackberry, cassis and graphite are all present in this profound first-growth quality blend that should age effortlessly for 25-30 or more years. This is a stunner and a revelation."

Staining red ink. Doesn't leap out of the glass, but what is apparent on the nose gives confidence for what's to come. Explosive on the palate, with blackberry, blackberry, blackberry, blackcurrant, licorice, cedar, pencil shavings, and mocha. Silky and polished, this glides on and on. This would easily be $100+ in Napa... Thank God for Sonoma.

This is quite nice. It hits all the notes but isn’t overly memorable.

Wonderful compliment to my nicely seasoned steak! Rich tannins, cherry undertones and a perfectly subtle spicy finish. Sunday dinner perfection. Thanks Grant Nieland.

Dark fruits, green asparagus, pepper, black tea. Medium body, balanced alcohol and acidity, long spicy finish. Everything done right, but it somehow underwhelmed.

Opened a bit early, but after a little breathing, perfection.
