Chalk Hill, California
Chalk Hill Estate Red 2013 received a 96-point score and great review from Robert Parker!
"The 2013 Proprietary Red Estate is a 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, blackberry, 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.
Chalk Hill Estate, the notable property that defined the Chalk Hill AVA, is now owned by William P. Foley II, an ambitious entrepreneur who has purchased a lot of top-end vineyards."
