95 is exactly right, great mouthfeel, super tannins, all round great flavor with spice in the end. 2007 is great year, beware the others. 95RP&95WE 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. This may be the finest portfolio of Chalk Hill wines I have yet tasted. All are super-impressive with beautiful purity, balance, texture, and complexity. Barrel samples of the 2008 Estate Red and Syrah Estate look nearly as impressive as the 2007s.
