Winemaker Notes

The 2007 Estate Red marks the culmination of thirty years of site-specific research with the goal of creating a single red wine that evokes the unique character of the Chalk Hill Estate. We have matched our diverse terrain, soils and mesoclimates to specific Bordeaux varieties, clones and rootstocks. The Estate Red combines Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Carmenère. Grown on rocky hillsides with sunny aspects, our red vineyards are thinned to low yields and canopies are diligently maintained to ensure the clusters reach optimum maturity. We are dedicated to managing tannins in the vineyard and patiently wait for flavor development as single vineyard blocks are micro-managed and frequently divided into multiple harvests to achieve desired ripeness. Winemaking practices are geared toward extracting the softest tannins from the skins and promoting fruit expression, with a combination of tank and barrel fermentations. Aged in French oak barrels for 20 months, this wine is a compilation of 42 small lots, each treated individually until the initial blending at 10 months barrel age. Aromas are varied and complex, featuring warm black raspberries, crème de cassis, violets, roasted herbs, and pipe tobacco. The palate delivers concentrated red fruits, dried cranberries and black plum leading to a more savory element of sage and black pepper. Textured yet silky, the wine finishes long and is enjoyable upon release, but will also age beautifully for the next 15+ years.

Blend 51% cabernet sauvignon; 24% malbec; 13% merlot; 11% petit verdot; 1% carmenère

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Perhaps the finest Estate Red to date is the 2007. Its dense ruby/purple hue is followed by blackberry, cassis, cedar, and licorice characteristics, supple tannins, a more accessible personality, full body, and admirable purity, texture, and length. Drink this beauty over the next 2-3 decades.
WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
Made in the modern style, this Cabernet-based Bordeaux-style blend was aged in mostly new French oak for 20 months, so it shows plenty of toasty, oaky notes. It's softly delicious, with tiers of raspberry, cherry, red currant, milk chocolate, violet and dried herb flavors. wrapped into the smoothest possible tannins. An extrodinarily beautiful wine for drinking now and the next 4-5 years.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Bold, rich, graceful and full-bodied, offering a wonderful beam of ripe blackberry, currant and wild berry, with touches of spice and tobacco leaf. Full-bodied, firming on the finish, where the flavors gain depth and maintain persistence. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Carmenere. Drink now through 2017.

Perhaps no other winery captures the casual luxury of Sonoma County better than Chalk Hill Estate. Founded nearly four decades ago, this spectacular 1300-acre property features 300 acres of vineyards, wilderness areas, winery, hospitality center, culinary garden, residence, stables, equestrian pavilion, sports fields, fishing and swimming ponds, and guest houses.

The winery's vineyards are thoughtfully woven through the native foliage and contoured to fit the intricate terrain. More than two-thirds of the Chalk Hill Estate remains uncultivated. The higher elevations offer stunning views of the Russian River Valley to the west and the Mayacamas Mountains to the east.
