    Dense, firm and focused, with chalky berry, mocha, dried currant, herb, sage and blackberry fruit that's complex, supple and supported by firm tannins. Decant.

    Good structure, nice finish. Lacking a little fruit on the nose. Overall very pleased.

    This Cab has rounded out very nicely, the tannins have softened, but the fruit and other flavors still shine through

Intense, balanced, and distinctive wines are produced from this sustainably farmed estate, now owned by Bill Foley. The Chalk Hill AVA, located between Russian River and Alexander Valley, is at a higher elevation than both valleys, with leaner soils. Here, winemaker Lisa Bishop Forbes uses a minimalist approach in crafting Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and red blends that have been benchmarks of the appellation for three decades.
