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
