Winemaker Notes

The 2011 Estate Red is plush and smooth. Aroma descriptors include plum jam, raspberry liqueur, dark chocolate and pipe tobacco. The complex flavor profile includes black cherry, blackberry, toasty oak and Kalamata olives. The finish is long with balanced acidity and abundant fruit sweetness. Textured yet silky, the wine is very appealing in its youth, but will also age beautifully for the next 8-10 years.

Blend: 47% Malbec, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% PetitVerdot, 11% Syrah, 3% Carmenere

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Composed of 47% Malbec, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, 11% Syrah and 3% Carmenère, the 2011 Proprietary Red Estate is one of the most singular and unique blends in Northern California. Attractive notes of blackcurrants, spice box, earth and background oak are followed by a medium to full-bodied wine revealing hints of camphor, charcoal and espresso roast. This elegant, savory, strong 2011 has the finesse and lightness provided by this vintage, resulting in a European-styled red. Drink it over the next decade.

Image of winery
Chalk Hill Estate Vineyards and Winery was purchased recently by Bill Foley, proprietor of Foley Family Wines, who will continue the time-honored traditions that Fred Furth began. Founded in 1972 by Fred Furth, the Chalk Hill Estate encompasses 280 acres of carefully positioned vineyards, including the valley floor, hillsides, and ridge tops of a 1300 acre estate. Perpetuating the time-honored traditions of the first land grant pioneers, the Chalk Hill Estate operates as a family farm with the daily tasks of sustainable viticulture flowing seamlessly through the growing season and ultimately to estate bottled wines. Chalk Hill is the only 100% estate winery in the Chalk Hill AVA nestled within the Russian River Valley. The passion for meticulous viticulture has resulted in elegant, world-class wines.

A Sonoma sub-appellation whose boundaries cover the northeastern corner of the Russian River Valley AVA, the Chalk Hill growing area is named after its unique chalky and white, volcanic ash soils. This terrain has proven successful with white varieties, namely Chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
