Chalk Hill Estate Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
At Chalk Hill, Cabernet Sauvignon wine growing is a composition of diverse microclimates, distinct clones, hillside terrains and sunny exposures. This wine lends aromas of cassis, autumn leaves, graphite and mocha which prelude a palate laced with bramble berries, earth, roasted espresso beans, tar and black spices. Its youthful yet integrated tannin structure makes this wine worthy of aging for 5 to 10 years.
Full bodied, dark fruit enveloping, rich dark chocolate notes, varying dark berries on the palate, hearty and more earth like on nose, meaty...would be great with a hearty steak
A very rich, peppery wine, with lots of fleshy/meaty scents on the nose. The finish is smooth and flavorful. This would be perfect with a nice steak.
Opaque ruby. Medium to full bodied. Rich tannins and balanced acidity. Graphite, blackberry, plum skin. intense. great but rough structure. Will definitely improve with time.
A very, very tasty wine!

External Reviews for Chalk Hill Estate Winery Cabernet Sauvignon
93 Points -Wine Enthusiast (2005 Cabernet Sauvignon) Continues Chalk Hill's great track record of 90-plus Cabs, although this may be the most age worthy in recent memory. You don't want to pop the cork until at least 2011 because the tannins put it into lockdown mode. But there's a great, deep heart of black currants longing to blossom.
Rich, powerful and full-bodied, this is marked by thick Syrah-like road tar, graphite, dried currant, sage and herbal flavors that are concentrated and reflective of a cool climate for Cabernet. Drink now through 2016. 7,132 cases made. -JL The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits classic aromas of black currants, loamy soil, and graphite.

A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2005 Chalk Hill Cabernet Sauvignon Imagine 750ml
Warm coffee and jam on the nose here, with blackcurrant on the palate and a structure that makes this wine a perfect candidate for the cellar. If you're going to drink this monster tonight, just make sure to air it out for a little while in a decanter first - then enjoy it with something meaty.
Wine Tasting NotesThe wine boasts perfumed aromas of black currants, blackberry jam, with hints of lavender, mocha and star anise. The rich and expansive texture, bolstered by the ripe, velvety tannins, creates a lush mouthfeel and indicates cellar worthiness.
