Winemaker's Notes

Chalk Hill Estate's newest Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon speaks clearly of the highly acclaimed 2001 vintage and continues the unmistakable quality and stylistic thread that has been evident in our previous vintages. Our rigorous viticultural standards, including: strict adherence to low yields, leaf pulling to promote maturity and color, and multiple passes through the vineyard to harvest only those clusters at maximum ripeness. This commitment to quality winegrowing is applied to all our family-owned vineyards. The long stretch of dry, warm, autumn weather allowed for additional hang time, allowing the slow progression toward full maturity, richness, weight, and flavor concentration.

The entire vintage was allowed to progress in small tanks through a native yeast fermentation with a cap management regime that extracted layers of flavor, concentrated texture and nuance that found its way to barrel ... and ultimately to the bottle and glass. Aged in 65% new French oak for 21 months, and blended with additional Bordeaux varietals that frame and enhance the Cabernet, the wine boasts perfumed aromas of black currants, 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.

But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. 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,...
