Chalk Hill Russian River Chardonnay 2007
The 2007 season was perfect for growing Chardonnay. Ideal weather through harvest allowed grapes from every block to reach desired ripeness. Aromas are concentrated and complex – white flower, sweet cream, ripe peach, lemon oil and wet stone – leading to a palate anchored with rich minerality and tropical and stone fruit. A clean acidity and mouth-filling texture unite pear, pineapple and sweet orange fruit with subtly sweet brown spice and honeyed toast.
Strong oak flavor and aroma
This wine at the time of consumption was possibly just over its peak, Very full bodied, buttery, and rich. It was very nice accompaniment to the Chicken Saltimbocca.
Tasted at Snooth pop up tasting event in NYC. Pear and apple flavors. 15% alcohol.
Oily nose of acetones, which gave way to bay leaf, limes and quinces. Rich, creamy, red apple flavors before a sharp citric finish
- WS Grand Tour 2011
Strong toasted marshmallow on the nose with hints of caramel, fig and apple. Fig driven palate. Creamy and toasty. Nice, but it has a harder, tannic feel on the palate. Feels like a red. A little heavy on the toast, but nice overall.
Tasted at UNLVino 4/10/10
External Reviews for Chalk Hill Russian River Chardonnay
Ripe, rich and full-bodied, with a slight leafy-minty accent to the core of pear, fig, anise and melon flavors. A bit coarse in texture, but time in the bottle should soften the mouthfeel. Drink now through 2005.
Long known for their powerful, elegant Chardonnay, Chalk Hill's 1998 offering is impressive for its complex array of aromas and flavors. The toasty, leesy, popcorn elements adorn full, richly nuanced sweet pear, pineapple and peach flavors. A lovely, smooth mouthfeel with a slight granular quality adds texture and interest. This refined wine exudes finesse and refinement.
Bold, rich and full-boded, with succulent fig, apricot, smoky oak and roasted marshmallow flavors that are complex and distinctive, finishing with a long, intricate finish and subtle flavor notes. Drink now through 2015.
A bold, rich, full-bodied style, with layers of toasty oak, caramel, fig and melon. Well-focused and balanced, ending with a full, persistent finish. Drink now through 2012.
A strong success in a challenging vintage, the 2006 Chardonnay reveals notes of spicy oak interwoven with tropical fruits, citrus butter, and orange oil. Full-bodied, layered, fresh, and lively, it can be enjoyed over the next 1-2 years.
Perhaps the finest Estate Red to date is the 2007. Its dense ruby/purple hue is followed by blackberry, cassis, cedar, and licorice characteristics, supple tannins, a more accessible personality, full body, and admirable purity, texture, and length. Drink this beauty over the next 2-3 decades.
The light straw/gold-hued 2007 Chardonnay Estate reveals an attractive bouquet of smoky hazelnuts, nectarines, and buttered citrus, medium to full body, and good freshness and acidity. Enjoy it over the next 1-2 years.
