Chalk Hill Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County

Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2006 Vintage) The 2006 CabernetSauvignon shows a great balance between fruit and structure. The wine’s multi-layered flavors represent both the sweet and the savory—cassis, dried bing cherry and huckleberry alongside grilled herbs, smoked meats anda touch of eucalyptus. The front and mid-palate are fruit-driven and lush, leading toward a more structured, textural finish, indicative of the age worthiness of this Cabernet. The Cabernet Sauvignon can be enjoyed with a myriad of dishes including Passion fruit Marinated Skirt Steak, Sweet Thai Style Rib Roast, grilled leeks, portobello mushrooms, beef dishes and blackberry sauce.

Winemaker's Notes

This Chalk Hill Cabernet Sauvignon is replete with aromas of ripe raspberry and blackberry, tinged with cigar box spice and dried flowers. The flavors add notes of black cherry syrup and blood orange to the mix, accentuating delicious contributions from toasty oak. The wine has substantial weight and grip, with silky tannins providing mid-palate sweetness and a lengthy finish.
