Chalk Hill Estate Red 2016

America, California
Chalk Hill Estate Red

Our 2016 Estate Red opens with bold and intense aromas of blackberry,anise, tobacco leaf and dark chocolate. The palate is rich and savory, with layered flavors of black cherry, dark chocolate and leather with oak influences of vanilla and toast. Though firm, the tannins are rounded by a balanced acidity and a long and smooth finish. Though appealing in its youth, this wine will also age beautifully over the next 15 years.

Winery Description

Chalk Hill is the only 100% estate winery in the Chalk Hill/Russian River Valley AVA in Sonoma County.  Founded in 1972, Chalk Hill’s unique topography and climactic and geological diversity allow both Burgundian and Bordeaux varieties to produce world class wines on the Estate. Chalk Hill has been a leader in clonal research for many years and each unique vineyard plot is meticulously matched to the grape variety and clone to which it is best suited.  Indeed the winery’s famed Estate Chardonnay is made from the Chalk Hill clone, which was developed at the winery. The quest for quality is the basis for all viticultural and winemaking decisions at Chalk Hill Estate.  Winemaker Courtney Foley uses light-handed techniques that allow each bottle to express the essence of the vineyard.
