Chalk Hill Cab 2004
Region: Sonoma County
Winery: Chalk Hill
Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon
Perfectly ripe bunches are the result of their rigorous and labor-intensive process of hand leaf-thinning, allowing both air and sunlight into the “fruiting zone” which stimulates ripening of flavors and provides soft, ripe tannins. The extracted layers of flavor, concentrated texture, and nuance found their way to barrel . . . and ultimately into the bottle.
Aged in 60% new,Taransaud-coopered, French oak for 16 months, and blended with additional estate-grown Bordeaux varietals to frame and enhance the Cabernet, the wine boasts perfumed aromas of black currants, blackberry jam, with hints of lavender, mocha and briar. The rich and expansive texture, bolstered by the ripe, velvety tannins, creates a lush mouthfeel and indicates cellar worthiness. It is neither fined nor filtered.
