Winemaker's Notes

Blend: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 7% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc

This wine boasts perfumed aromas of black currants and blackberry jam with hints of lavender, mocha and star anise. The rich and expansive texture, bolstered by the ripe, velvety tannins, creates a lush mouthfeel and indicates cellar worthiness.

"The winemaker at Chalk Hill, is doing everything right. The 2003 Cabernet is extraordinarily balanced and beautiful, a dry, ripe wine of power and full-bodied substance, but enormous subtlety. The cassis fruit meshes seamlessly with toasty new oak to produce compellingly complex flavors." 94 Points

The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...

Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
