2007 Chalk Hill Cabernet
Gold Medal Winner San Antonio Wine Competition
A deep garnet hue in the glass, this wine greets you with aromas of raspberry, bing cherries, and roasted herbs, accompanied by delicate undertones of anise and hints of mint. With a vibrant mouthfeel and substantial tannins, the palate enjoys cocoa and cherry, with a distinct coffee finish. Nicely balanced, with good acidity and well-integrated oak, this big wine reveals itself immediately in the glass. The mid-palate is fruit-driven and lush, leading toward a more structured, textural finish, indicative of the age worthiness of this Cabernet. Decant for an hour or pop a bottle or two in your cellar, as this bold Cabernet will continue to evolve over the next 10 to 12 years.
Style: Full, Bold
