"The Proprietary Red Estate (43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 15% Malbec, 12% Petit Verdot, 10% Syrah and 1% Carmenere) is something to be endorsed as the wine world tries to move from a varietal-conscious, mono-cepage philosophy to where the best wines will tend to be blends, even if they are dominated by one grape or another. Chalk Hill's Red Estate exhibits an inky/purple color followed by aromas of black olives, cassis and toast. Rich, full-bodied and expressive, it is built for the long haul rather than for current drinkability. A beautiful texture, full-bodied mouthfeel, terrific purity and a long finish suggest it will be significantly more complex and softer in 5-10 years, and last for 20-25+ years."
