2005 Chaleur Estate 1.5L Eng
RED MOUNTAIN AVA
The only vintage to include Cabernet Sauvignon from the Grand Ciel vineyard on Red Mountain, the 2005 Chaleur Estate is a structured, firm, straight and age-worthy Bordeaux blend from this estate that offers lots of black fruits, lead pencil shavings, chocolate and toasted bread aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, with good richness and chewy tannin, it will have 20-25 years of overall longevity.
