Winemaker Notes

Our 2014 Estate Red is soft and rich with a fragrant bouquet of black cherry, black tea, and lavender. The palate is plush and round, offering flavors of black currants, tobacco leaf, dark chocolate, and leather. As the flavors fan out across the palate, a distinct oak nuance intermingles seamlessly with supple tannins on the long finish. This wine is appealing in its youth, but will also age beautifully over the next 10 years.

WW 93
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
A substantial red with excellent finesse, the black-fruited 2014 Chalk Hill Estate Red deftly shows berries, earth, and spice. The wine's smooth and layered texture pair it well with an herb-crusted tri-tip.(Tasted: November 16, 2017, San Francisco, CA)
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Blended of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Malbec, 16% Petit Verdot, 8% Merlot and 5% Syrah, the 2014 Estate Red has a deep garnet-purple color and notes of blackberry preserves, crème de cassis and cedar with touches of baking spices, vanilla pod, dark chocolate and Mediterranean herbs. Full bodied, concentrated and generously fruited, it has firm, ripe, velvety tannins and a lively backbone, finishing long with the oak poking through. Afford it another 2-3 years in bottle and enjoy it over the next 15+ years.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
This is made largely from Cabernet Sauvignon, incorporating Malbec, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Syrah. Thick, rich and lush, it shows dense layers of black currant, blackberry, meat, licorice and cedar. It finishes rounded and dripping in chocolate.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
A blend of cabernet, malbec, petit verdot, merlot and syrah, this might be inky and tannic, but it’s also pretty fresh, with a sweet anise note lifting its dark berry fruit. It feels a bit astringent at first, but the structure turns soft and loamy with air—decant it for grilled pork sausages.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Elegantly rustic, with savory herb and dusty earth accents amid loamy dark berry, cedar and sage flavors. Finishes strong if a little diffuse, yet the layers of complexity are evident. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Syrah. Drink now through 2029.

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 enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. 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.
