  Chalk Hill Estate Winery has a very unique terroir and climate, and when Fred Furth, founder of the winery, flew over the land in 1972, he knew that it had the potential to be a top-class vineyard. Chalk Hill Estate Winery is located in the Chalk Hill AVA, part of Sonoma County, and it is the only estate winery located within that AVA. The land itself borders the cooler Russian River Valley and the warmer Alexander Valley, meaning that the 1,400 acre vineyard has a wide range of soil types and a microclimate that is unique to the region. Lisa Bishop Forbes, Chalk Hill’s winemaker, has managed to take the varied grapes that the region produces and turn them into extremely successful wines, especially Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and the winery’s Estate Red.

Wine Enthusiast ReviewThere seems to be a great deal of new oak here, to judge by the fresh, strong aromas of vanilla, cedar and smoky char, but those scents mesh well with the cassis, mocha, peat and anise that come from fruit. Theres also a leathery thing going on, a little sweaty, but it adds a spicy complexity.

The surprisingly fine, dense ruby-colored 2001 Merlot Estate exhibits a sweet nose of chocolatey black cherries, herbs, and mocha, red as well as black fruits, and subtle oak. This is a tasty, complex Merlot for drinking now and over the next 4-5 years. ** Only 4 in Stock **
