Chalk Hill Estate 2010 Red Wine, $42.49-$49.99, 91+ points, was black from the core all the way to the burgundy-red glass shallows and the clear rim-ring.
The nose was black currant, cedar, and a hint of violets.
Full-bodied with good acidity and appropriately supportive tannin.
Flavors reflected the nose but blueberry, plum, and licorice were complimentary.
Finished long on whispers of black fruits, accelerating spice notes, and some warmth from the 14.8% alcohol.
Varietals were 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 15% Malbec, 12% Petit Verdot, 10% Syrah and 1% Carménère.
