2007 Chalk Hill "Estate Red" Chalk Hill Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1058607 95 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2010)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Made in the modern style, this Cabernet-based Bordeaux-style blend was aged in mostly new French oak for 20 months, so it shows plenty of toasty, oaky notes. It's softly delicious, with tiers of raspberry, cherry, red currant, milk chocolate, violet and dried herb flavors, wrapped into the smoothest possible tannins. An extraordinarily beautiful wine... Inner quote mark (11/2010)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Bold, rich, graceful and full-bodied, offering a wonderful beam of ripe blackberry, currant and wild berry, with touches of spice and tobacco leaf. Full-bodied, firming on the finish, where the flavors gain depth and maintain their persistence. (JL) Inner quote mark (9/2010)

92 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark A slightly different breed of cat is found in this highly expressive, relatively complex and quite full-bodied bottling. Its aromatic blend of sweet cedar, soils, black cherries, currants and vanilla is followed on the palate by deeply fruited flavors tinged with caramel and dried herbs. It is supple to start, has noticeable but softened tannins and promises to age nicely for up to a decade. Inner quote mark (8/2010)

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Lisa Bishop Forbes blended this wine from the Furth family's estate vineyard, the property recently purchased by Bill Foley. Half of the blend is Cabernet Sauvignon, the other half Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Carmenère. Fermented with indi­genous yeast and aged in French oak, the fruit delivers bold strokes of flavor—from tangy red to crisp green herb and darker tannic spice. The wine is buoyant and festive, an impressive red to open for a holiday meal, particularly if you're serving something as rich as beef Wellington. Inner quote mark (12/2010)

91 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Inky ruby. Highly aromatic nose combines cassis, cherry skin, cured tobacco and smoky oak. Supple on entry, offering sweet dark fruit flavors, then tightly wound in the middle, with a sappy quality to the dark berry liqueur and smoky herb flavors. Showing a lot of exotic character right now, much of which seems oak-derived, but there's a concentrated dark fruit as well. The smoky note gains power toward the back, which shows rather suave tannins and lingers with very good intensity. Inner quote mark (6/2010)
