This stunning Chalk Hill Estate Red has fantastic pairing versatility. It will do very nicely with beef, steak, duck, lamb, and even grilled salmon. Pour a deep purple glass and get the meal off and running with a platter of carpaccio of beef, sprinkled with peppery arugala, shaved Pecorino and some luscious olive oil. Not a bad start... If you're having it with the entree, our first choice with this Estate Red would be lamb chops in a crisp potato crust. We love the sensuously rich dark fruits of this intense Chalk Hill juxtaposed against the delicious char of well-marbled steak. The supple tannins will play perfectly with that same char. Another great choice with this Meritage is a grilled salmon filet with delicious tarragon sauce and some silky mashed potatoes. What'll it be winelovers?

Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate:  "The 2015 Estate Red is deep garnet-purple colored and delivers a good amount of oak-inspired notions to begin over a core of blackcurrant cordial, blackberry pie, preserved plums and chocolate box with hints of vanilla pod and cigar box. Big, concentrated and full-bodied, the palate is jam-packed with black fruit preserves, framed by ripe, firm, grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing on a woody note. Forget it for 5-6 years and drink it over the next 20. Drink: 2023-2043." Jun 2018

Winery: " Bold, deep and concentrated are just some of the ways to describe our 2015 Estate Red. It opens with intense aromas of blackberry, anise, lavender and dark chocolate. The palate offers more savory qualities like iron, tobacco and bay leaf while broad, supple tannins tie all of the flavors together. The finish is strikingly long and complemented by a slight toastiness from the oak influence. Appealing in its youth, this wine will also age beautifully over the next 15 years."
