2011 Chaleur Estate 1.5L
RED MOUNTAIN AVA
Review by Jeb Dunnuck for Robert Parker:
The 2011 Chaleur Estate is a gorgeous Bordeaux blend from this estate that does everything right. Made from 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, it gives up textbook creme de cassis, toast, lead pencil and cedar to go with a full-bodied, rich, layered and seamless style. Gaining richness in the glass, enjoy this concentrated, balanced effort over the coming two decades.
