2013 CHALK HILL “ESTATE RED” PROPRIETARY BLEND
Earning an astounding 96 Point Score from Robert Parker, Chalk Hill’s 2013 Proprietary Blend boasts fabulous aromas of blackberries and black currants, interwoven incisively with nuances of sweet vanilla oak, cassis and espresso. Established as an AVA in 1983, Chalk Hill’s unique micro-climate and volcanic, chalky, white ash soils furnish fruit of remarkable power and distinct, delineated flavors.
A marriage of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Malbec, and 12% Petit Verdot, accented with Merlot, Syrah and Carmenere, the wine’s tightly wound core is pure, rich and extracted with layer after layer of ripe blue and black fruits that come alive in the glass. After evolving for 20 months in oak and over a year in the bottle, this stupendously impressive 2013 is drinking beautifully now and will cellar effortlessly for 25+ years.

From Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate, "The 2013 CHALK HILL "ESTATE RED" PROPRIETARY BLEND of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Malbec, 12% Petit Verdot and the rest Carignane, Syrah and Merlot. This is another titanic effort from proprietor Foley. A spectacular dense-purple color and sweet toasty oak intermixed with licorice, black berry, cassis and graphite are all present in this profound first growth quality blend that should age effortlessly for 25-30 or more years. This is a stunner and a revelation." 96 Points
