2016 Chalk Hill Estate Red
Chalk Hill, Sonoma, California
WB Rating: 91

Alcohol by volume: 15.2%
Price at time of purchase: $70.00 (Bottle Barn)
Type: Cabernet / Bordeaux
Principal varietal(s): 47% Cab, 37% Malbec, 9% Petit Verdot, 7% Merlot

For some unknown reason, this excellent red (which retails at $70) was being given away - must have been a clearance item - by Bottle Barn for $24.99. Opaque purple, almost black color promises good things. The Malbec shine through in the spicy blackberry and dark currant flavors touched with dried herbs and complex notes of rose hips, Asian spice, barbecue smoke. Rich and beautifully balanced in the mouth, long finish. - HK 2021-05-20
